We started using QwertyTown about 2 years ago in grades 3-6. It has proven so effective and engaging that we’ve incorporated it into our entire district grades 1-8 – about 2,100 students.
Our student are so motivated to learn keyboarding through QwertyTown’s lessons and level challenges. They absolutely love the Avatars and communication features.
Our teachers and administration really like QwertyTown for it’s easy roster management through Clever. They’re apparently releasing a new version this Fall with new features including a head to head game and Chrome App that we’re really excited about.
Good web-based application for keyboarding practice. Paid app that offers a curriculum for students to follow and ability for teachers and parents to track progress over time. Customizable benchmarks. I recommend using this tool for individual keyboarding practice. We support students keyboarding practice by creating Qwertytown accounts for students and supporting practice at home.
