To ensure that typing skills are integrated in the best possible way, a variety of different learning channels are used at the same time. We work with colours, figures, stories, games, and different kinds of exercises such as fill-in-the-blanks exercises and reflective exercises.
We first teach how to automatize letters and their positions and then translate that knowledge into into motor skills. Typ10 uses a finger-by-finger method, which is taught vertically, and which is cemented into a structure in which every lesson consists of 4 steps:
Memorising the position of the letters on the keyboard
Locating letters on the keyboard and going through the different locations on the keyboard
(with stickers on the correct key).
Getting acquainted with new letters and letter combinations
Conveying cognitive knowledge in a fun manner through games linked to Typ10 content.
Visual and visuomotor imagination
Practicing through the use of stories that revolve around the key words that have been taught.
Exercises and homework.
The teacher can follow up on how often a pupil practices by email or through the Typ10 online profile.
