Typing Skills

13 October 2007

Whilst reading the blog by Bristol teacher Simon Mills I came across a reminder from Doug Dickinson about these two free resources for helping pupils to improve their keyboard and typing skills.  

The first involves a free download called ‘Sebran’ which contains a number of games including one called ‘letter rain’ which helps children quickly locate letters on the keyboard:

The second is ‘Dance Mat Typing’ from the BBC which is an introduction to touch typing: www.bbc.co.uk/schools/typing/
