All our Year 3 – 6 students have access this year to a Typing resource called Typing Tournament. Typing Tournament Online is simple and fun to use yet powerful and sophisticated. It uses a unique combination of mastery learning, teaching sequences and games to motivate children to learn the vital skill of keyboarding. Informed by in-class research it is packed full of clever, innovative features that actively guide children through the activities for optimal learning and ensure that they are using the right fingers on the right keys. It teaches typing for life!

Typing Tournament Online can be used anywhere there is an internet connection including home and school, at any time of day and on any device including iPads and other mobile tablets. Uniquely, Typing Tournament Online uses an on-screen keyboard to overcome the serious issues arising from the inbuilt soft keyboards on mobile devices

Because those with 10 finger typing skills can type properly they can complete their work faster, and are at a massive advantage in life. Accurate, rapid keyboarding skills are critical for today’s learners and tomorrow’s earners.

Copies of the usernames and passwords for the students at Coolbinia will be handed out by the classroom teachers.

If you have any questions about the Typing Tournament program then please see your classroom teachers or Mr Wilson our Digital Technologies and ICT Specialist.
