Dance Mat Typing is a structured typing lesson. It has a series of four levels with three stages for each level.
The animated animal teachers take kids through each of the 12 stages, narrating and showing them where to place their fingers on the keyboard, which fingers to use to type particular keys with onscreen cartoon hands. At the end of each stage, there is always a song to celebrate the kids’ accomplishments.
Dance Mat Typing will help your kids learn to type – or if they can type already, it’ll help them get better and better! There’s no signing up or logging in, and it has clear instructions and a simple interface.
There is a warm-up at the beginning of each stage and then there is the hand exercise for both the left and right hands. In the learning process, an unforgettable cast of characters will give students both coaching and kudos.
