Why learn to touch type?

When you can do it well, touch typing is the fastest way to write. Many people can soon learn to touch type faster than they can write with a pen. The important things to remember are:

  • Use the correct fingers
  • There's no need to rush!
  • Always rest your wrists on the desk
  • You should take a rest, and shake your hands and arms to relax your muscles if you get tired
  • It's important not to look at your hands when you are learning to type. The best way to ensure that you don't look at your hands is to cover them up - you can make a simple box out of cardboard or wood to cover both the keys and your hands

 

 

Games

balloons

The game enables the player to learn the positions of the letters on the keyboard, without the need to look at the keyboard itself. Aim of the game: To burst as many balloons as possible, where each balloon represents one letter and helps teach and improve the touch typing method.

chameleon

The game enables the player to practice typing structured text, whilst improving the typing speed. Aim of the game: to feed the chameleon as many flies as possible... the more the chameleon eats the faster the typing gets. At each stage of the game the player has to increase the typing speed.
