I played with all of these just to see what they were about and which one I would use and then I had the bright idea of letting my daughter play on them because she is eight. Of course she loves the games on any and all of them . I think that she learned the most on typing.com. She seemed the most engaged while playing on the actual lessons and was more excited about playing on those. I liked keybr myself. I think what I liked about it was that it was addictive. I had to stop because I would still have been playing on it. It was a lot of fun though. I think that we should have computer class back in elementary school because our students need to learn to type even though we have iPads. They need keyboarding skills. Just like the needed typing skills back in the day. They need to be able to type. That may change in the future but for now it needs to be included as a specials class. Thats just my opinion though.

        I agree that the skill needs to taught in a specials class. Time for instruction is often lost due to other daily interruptions. I agree that the students need this skill. I am going to research how... more

        As I have been looking at the typing practice games, I keep thing about my typing instruction from high school. I agree with you that students do need keyboarding skills. Is this instruction... more
