Reviews of SL Keyboarding Curricula


Thank you for all of the information you provide, I don’t think I could do my job without your books, wikis, and advice. Thank you for being an inspiration to me and others and for being willing to share your knowledge and experience with all of us [refers to the free help available to curriculum users]  –long-time teacher


With online testing we have to hit the road running with keyboarding. This resource makes it easy! Thank you! –TeacherPayTeachers customer


I will be teaching keyboarding for the first time this year. Our students haven’t had an official keyboarding or technology class ever in our school. I really questioned how I was going to accomplish teaching so much information when I see the kids once a week [until I found this course]. –technology integration specialist


Finding you and all that you have to support technology and its users have been a blessing –new technology teacher


I teach computer preschool – 8th grade. Having this guide to keyboarding helped me know what to expect for each grade level. It also gives great websites to use to reinforce learning. I also have the K-8 computer curriculum textbooks and I am highly satisfied with their content.  –Amazon Customer


This book provides tech teachers — both novice and those with years of experience. I especially appreciate the specific guidelines with ACTUAL resources available online with best practices and extensions for a variety of learners. I feel that this is BY FAR the most HELPFUL resource I have come across as a first year technology instructor and plan on using this daily throughout the year! BRAVO! –Amazon customer — first year teacher

This book offers so much more than I expected. Not only does it tell how to implement keyboarding into all grade levels (kindergarten-5th) it provides several websites and cross-curricular ideas that can be utilized along with the curriculum. I would recommend this book to anyone who teaches technology to grade school students. –Amazon customer


When your child comes home and asks to to practice keyboarding you know the teacher is doing something right. Even though kids can text with two fingers our school has discovered that the kids want to learn how to keyboard. We are using the book for K-8 instruction in keyboarding to prepare the students for the 1:1 program we have in grades 8-12 –Amazon customer, parent


This curriculum goes well beyond simply which software to pick. It mixes software with games, quizzes and projects. All with the goal teaching age appropriate keyboarding.  –Amazon Customer
