HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL -- May 9, 2016 - Typing is boring - right? So what’s the secret that has made Type to Learn the proven, gold standard for teachers, students and schools across the country looking to springboard learning for the last 12 years?

One can best imagine instructionally-sound teaching and learning as an old-fashioned teeter-totter. Picture great teachers delivering relevant and engaging information that’s able to unlock key ideas and learning constructs. Students absorb the momentum of those big ideas and spring back with their own ability to elaborate. Learning escalates through reading and writing practice. As the process completes itself, a child’s ability to effectively comprehend and express their thoughts can be measured. That’s precisely how Type to Learn works.

Today’s technology invites a promise that teaching and learning moments can truly happen anytime, anywhere. ChromeBooks, iPads, Tablets, Smart Phones, and Thin Clients offer this generation of 21st century learners a cost-effective chance to advance their capacity to grow knowledge everywhere. Type To Learn Cloud Edition places K-12’s #1 Keyboard Proficiency program in every learning environment without any installation or technology hurdles. 

“Typing is the primary means of interfacing with any mobile device, triggering the instant ability to communicate with other devices and other people. Learning how to use the keyboard is an essential 21st Century skill kids need to effectively share their ideas, elaborate their thoughts and express themselves,” offers Joe DeSario, GM of Sunburst. “A child’s capacity to be proficient in typing truly acts as a springboard to all forms of learning.
