SmartTyping training for students!
In Elementary School – High School – University

Why Typing Training?

The use of a computer in Elementary and High School, Universities and in society, in general, is increasing. Students who have had typing training at a young age are better prepared for considerable computer use in the future. In addition, students who can find the keys automatically without having to focus on typing can focus on the actual content of the assignment.

Research by H. van der Meijden connected to the Radboud University in Nijmegen, the Netherlands, showed that students who learned the skill of touch-typing with 10 fingers at a young age are better prepared for Middle School. A correct posture while typing is also part of the training and reduce the risk of RSI problems.

There are many advantages to learn how to touch-type blind through SmartTyping.

After the training course, the students can fully concentrate on what they want to type instead of thinking about the typing itself.

  1. Adopting a relaxed work posture reduce the risk of RSI.
  2. The course improves fine motor skills while typing.
  3. The training is fun, informal and only takes 4½ hours.
  4. There are 3 tests in which progression will be measured.
  5. The results of the exercises and tests will be sent by email.
  6. The exercise system is online.
  7. Additional exercise material is available.

Start SmartTyping at What Age?

The SmartTyping training course is available for children from the age of 11, who know the alphabet well and have not yet started to touch-type blind.

The Parent’s Role

Touch-Typing Blind

During a 4½ hour 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 visualisation 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 you are able to touch-type blind using ten fingers. To enhance the skill and increase typing speed, during 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 children will frequently receive an email to practice and to measure their progress. After 6 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.


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.

How Does It Work?

Baseline measurement exercise

Prior to the course you will be asked to complete a baseline measurement exercise in order to measure your typing speed and accuracy. During the course we will highly stimulate your brain with visual, kinesthetic and auditory learning skills. You will receive an official SmartTyping certificate after completing the 6-week evaluation exercise

In an creative environment

In an imaginative and creative environment you learn how to touch type using 10 fingers. During the training course both the left and right hemispheres of your brain will be stimulated through visual, kinesthetic and auditory learning techniques. Using pictures, music, colors and physical exercises, the creative and visual fields of the right-brain hemisphere are stimulated. Simultaneously, certain areas of the left-brain hemisphere with its function for logical, analytical and abstract thinking are also stimulated.
The benefit of these learning methods is to increase the use of your whole brain, which results in knowledge being saved far more efficiently in your long-term memory and your new skills being accessed more effectively. We will also spend time on the correct position of the fingers and body posture.

A Unique SmartTesting Online Exercise and Follow-up System.

Prior to the start of the course you will receive an email. In this email you will be asked to do a small typing exercise in order to measure your typing skills for speed and accuracy (baseline measurement).

After the course you will be asked by a daily email, to practice your new typing skills for 15 days for only 15 minutes using the online system. Immediately after you have completed your exercise, you will receive feedback on speed, accuracy and time.

After these 15 days you can start to use it in your daily work and your improvement will increase. We are confident that your speed and accuracy will further improve and after 6 weeks you will be asked to complete an evaluation, showing a 15-20% average increase to your baseline measurement!
You will receive an official SmartTyping certificate after completing the 6-week evaluation exercise.

Evaluation Typing Tests if you want

In addition to the exercises requested by email, you are more than welcome to improve your typing skills by practicing using our online exercise environment: SmartTesting. After intervals of 6 weeks, 3 months and 6 months you will be asked to complete an Evaluation Typing Test.

After completing the training, you will have gained blind faith in SmartTyping!

Focus On your books!

When you are able to touch type, you can focus on the content. No longer do you have to alternate between the keyboard and the content of what you are learning, or the text you have to type. SmartTyping is unique. Nowhere else will you be able to learn to touch-type in 4.5 hours using 10 fingers!

Are You Dyslectic?

Thanks to the brain-friendly method, dyslectic people find it easy to learn fast to touch type.
Speech therapists and remedial teachers know from experience that dyslectic people benefit hugely from a typing course. If dyslexia also causes problems when you read, take a look at: SmartReading. A speed-reading method also developed through brain-friendly learning.

Dr K.W. (Wim) Florijn – Internal Medicine, Ruwaard van Putten Hospital

“It’s a relief to know where all the keys are on the keyboard without endlessly repeating. Good that it was carried out on location that quickly!”

Karla Pit – Atlant Care Group

“A special kind of typing course. The letters and symbols are being visualized and stored in your memory in a fun way. The link between your image-forming and the movements of your fingers should be mastered in the follow-up online practice sessions.”

Erik Tiggelaar – Consultant, Haga Hospital

“Surprising!! In particular reading with images and stories suits me perfectly. Nice evening! Laughing, relaxing and learning. I really learned a lot in a visual way. The SmartTyping typing course: Learning to type fast in a special way. Surprisingly fast results. Very good use of personal learning styles.”

Ilse Koelemij – Aios Skin Diseases, Deventer Hospital

“I chose this course because I have to work in the EPD frequently and I make many typos. The course layout is great; you learn to visualize the keyboard which makes you find the letters very fast. You learn a whole new way of typing. After one week, typing is improved greatly. Every day you receive an e-mail telling you that an exercise is waiting for you. It takes about 15 minutes per day. I can definitely recommend the course.”

Anja van Aken – Implementation Manager EPD, MCA Gemini Group

“A super way to get to know the keyboard. Clear associations by means of colors, stories, matching images and sound. So it’s a method for everybody to learn and associate fast. Humor. Enhanced team building. Good luck with future trainings.”

Pieter Kingma – Orthopaedic Surgery, Kennemer Hospital

“The typing course was a positive experience for me. Fun learning method, working with mnemonics. It works well, the positions of the keys on the keyboard are memorized quickly. Before, I never thought I’d be able to learn how to touch type at my age (47). I can recommend this to every 2-finger typist. Practicing now.”
