Multiple Curriculum Options

Secondary instructors can use our EduTyping Secondary curriculum, which uses a traditional method of touch typing and includes a series of interactive lessons that integrates updated pop culture content, keeping students interested and engaged.
Personalized Skins and Avatars
Students love picking their own themes and lesson skins to match their personality -- It’s even been proven to stop them from looking down at their fingers as they type!
Before students begin typing, they’ll complete a series of digital literacy lessons to learn all about computers, cyber citizenship, and proper typing posture and technique. Lessons include instructional videos, downloadable activities, and auto-graded quizzes, where applicable.
A series of computer applications lessons helps students take the first steps towards becoming proficient in foundational technology skills by preparing them to complete key tasks in word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations using Microsoft or Google applications.
Instant Feedback & Rewards
Students are motivated as they earn stars and badges as their typing progress and skills increase. Typing progress is always visible from the dashboard, typing screen, and the My Progress page.
EduTyping includes a variety of typing games that allow students to take a break from their lessons while still reinforcing their keyboarding skills.
Certificate of Completion
