Typing Games Treasure

April 24, 2014 -- Submitted by Tom, a reader from Finland, who is affiliated with the site.

Funny typing games for kids.

Touch typing games have become one of the most popular ways to develop typing skills in the classroom through the level of interaction they allow and the variety of students which they appeal to. While playing, students are also learning hand eye coordination and muscle memory. These are two of the most important elements of mastering touch typing.

Typing games have proven to be effective when it comes to learning how to quickly pick up a new skill. Students are challenged at just the right times and rewarded upon completion. The element of completing a challenge in exchange for a reward whether it be a certificate of completion or otherwise is often enough to make the experience one that students will remember.
