The website provides a scope and sequence document which overviews the curriculum goals, units and adaptability of technology themes across content areas. The keyboarding curriculum is broken down into beginner, intermediate and advanced sections, providing grade level suggestions regarding the appropriate starting place for students based on their age, skill and consistency of practice. Tech Readiness, Coding Essentials and Career Prep are guiding units that allow students to explore digital citizenship, soft skills for the 21st century workplace, and basic web programming. Educators can customize the student experience by assigning lessons surrounding specific objectives, tasks and learning goals.
There are several units of study arranged in categories such as Keyboarding, Tech Readiness, Coding Essentials and Career Prep, each of which include several lessons. Educators can assign students different lessons depending on their own course goals related to keyboarding practice, digital citizenship, coding and workplace appropriate use of technology. Students can begin their typing practice through the beginner, intermediate or advanced units wherein they are presented with a series of activities related to keystrokes, hand placement, and finger reaches. Educators can further customize the individual student learning experience by providing specific texts to type related to their own grade-level content or units of study and set assignment deadlines and a grading threshold (speed, accuracy) for the assigned student lessons.
Educators can manage the Typing.com platform and create reports to help monitor students’ individual progress and students can view their own progress, track their “problem keys” and engage with additional practice activities in areas of weakness identified through their performance. Badges are earned and students have the option to print out a certificate from the after completing tests.
