Project Description

The funniest and most efficient typing course

Why Typing Training?

The use of a computer in primary- and secondary school, high school, university, and society, in general, is increasing. Students who have had typing training at a young age are better prepared for much future computer use. 

Also, students who can find the keys automatically do not have to focus on typing. They can focus on the content of the assignment. Research by H. van der Meijden connected to the Radboud University in Nijmegen, showed, that students who learned the skill of touch-typing with ten fingers at a young age are better prepared for secondary school. A correct posture while typing is also part of the training. It prevents RSI problems.

Touch-Typing for young people

During a 4½-hour online training course, your child will learn the position of all keys on the keyboard from a skilled trainer. The training makes use of a unique learning feature in which visualization and association techniques are the core elements. Since the training is short, nobody will give up.

The training is fun and interactive.

Increasing Typing Speed

After the training, the student can touch-type blind using ten fingers. To enhance the skill and increase typing speed, for two weeks, an exercise will be sent daily by email. This exercise will take a maximum of 15 minutes per day. After this exercise period, the students will frequently receive an email to practice and to measure their progress. After six weeks, they will receive their last evaluation test. Additional exercises are also available through email. By practicing (daily), such as the training exercises and typing of an essay, the typing speed will increase.

Support

A lot of exercises are available within the training course, and there are several tests in which the progression is measured. The results are available immediately, and an email with the result is sent to the child.

The method to learn typing quickly and efficiently while having fun!

Industry Leading Typing Skills

Method

Through SmartTyping, you will learn to touch-type with 10 fingers in a fun way. During the training course, you will make use of brain stimulant tools such as music, colors, and images. This results in activating the left-brain hemisphere’s analytical and abstract thinking areas as well as the right brain hemisphere’s creative and visual skills. You will experience a significantly faster learning ability with immediate storage in your long term memory. 

SmartTesting; a unique exercise and follow-up system

After the 4-hour training course, you will practice for 3 weeks in the online follow-up system. The tests take about 15 to 20 minutes, after which you receive immediate feedback from the system about your performance. 

After these 15 days of practicing, a few evaluation tests will follow to measure the progress of your skills. After 6 weeks, you will be asked to do an Evaluation Typing Test from which you will learn that you have made an improvement of an average of 20% compared to your 0-measurement, but now touch-typing with 10 fingers!    

We will reward you with an official SmartTyping Certificate. 

Program

Before the online training course, you will take a 0-measurement to measure the start speed and accuracy. The classroom training (4 hours) is subdivided in sessions that are supported visually and by auditory: 

  • Concentration skills
  • Association skills
  • Basic row left hand
  • Basic row right hand
  • Left hand remaining keys
  • Right hand remaining keys
  • Left-hand symbols
  • Right-hand symbols
  • Left-hand numbers
  • Right-hand numbers

During the training course, the trainer will spend time on the correct working posture. For example, the participants learn at what height the desk and screen need to be. Also, the correct seating position for arms, legs as well as back will be explained. That way, the risk of illnesses such as RSI is kept to a minimum. 

Online Follow-up Trajectory

The online follow-up trajectory consists of 15 workday exercises from 15 to 30 minutes each. After that, several evaluation moments will follow at which the participants’ progress is measured. The interim status quo and development can be measured in the online follow-up system. In the first 15 working days after the training, we will support the participants daily by sending an email as motivation to practice. 

3 months of unlimited access to the online practice environment

You will have access to the online training environment for six months to practice your skills at any moment, with immediate feedback. Once a week, we will send a motivational email. 

5 Evaluation Moments

You will take 5 (mandatory) evaluation tests:

  • 1st evaluation: before the start of the training (0-measurement)
  • 2nd evaluation: directly after the training 
  • 3rd evaluation: 16 days after the training 
  • 4rh evaluation: 6 weeks after the training
  • 5th evaluation: 3 months after the training

During the entire trajectory, the progress is monitored by your personal trainer. He can act as a source of information, supervisor, and coach. Contact with the trainer is via email. 

Yes a real person behind it!
