TypingMaster Inc. presents its latest game-based course, TypeTastic, which is designed for elementary-school students. Created with teacher and classroom feedback, TypeTastic gets the youngest students started typing by using just one finger to start. These pedagogical games are designed for both computers and touchscreen devices.

For K–3 students, typing with all 10 fingers at once can be challenging, especially when they haven’t even learned where all the letters are. In response to this challenge, TypingMaster developed the TypeTastic training course, which focuses first on teaching letter locations, hand-eye coordination, and typing with one finger. In just a few hours, the students can type short texts smoothly.

Students can use the browser-based TypeTastic on PCs, Macs, Chromebooks, and tablets—without installation or plugins. Tablet users also have the option to connect through an external keyboard.
