Jacqui, as you asked I’m sharing the link here http://www.ratatype.com/
I’d like to find someone to come to my kids school and teach a keyboarding class in la. Do you know anyone?
I don’t know anyone in Louisiana who could do that. I do have an online class for students–you can look at. It includes teachers manuals, student workbooks, and videos for students. Here’s the link. Please note: If you buy the student workbooks, you get the videos and teacher manuals for free.
This is intended as a student-paced, student-directed keyboarding course that fits into any curriculum
sorry! Los Angeles, California! Hollywood specifically!
How funny–I read la as Louisiana!
Can you provide a few details? There are kid’s tech groups who do that–for a fee. Are you looking for a teacher? A volunteer? During school or after?
Thanks! I was looking for someone to come to our school in Hollywood and teach an after school class one day a week for some kids. I may have found someone. It’s just that they won’t do it if they are on their own, no matter how fun they make the games. And, no, not a volunteer. I found one tech group that I am researching now. Thanks!
Perhaps you like to add a link to my typing games at http://www.digipuzzle.net/education/typing/index.htm
Thanks for pointing me to your new site Jacqui, I love all the resources and links you have here! Again, here’s the website I’m developing for teachers and typing students to use:
Thank you for considering adding it to your list!
I already added it. I love finding keyboarding resources that teach one row at a time. Too often, programs start with home row and then it’s a free-for-all. Some teachers like more order in their instruction.
You’ll see it on this list.
Aren’t you nice!
Here is a new resource: http://thetypingcoach.com
