Students are continuing to learn their keyboarding skills. QwertyTown is a web-based keyboarding app that teaches typing and online communication skills. Students are driven to succeed by QwertyTown's games, rewards, social motivation, powerful teacher reports, and a deep understanding of how keyboarding skills improve their lives in and out of school.
The students have mastered the parts of the keyboard and have learned what the command keys do. Over the next few weeks we will be practicing typing using the website, Dance Mat Typing. Next, they will also be introduced to MS Word.
