“Our district has a strict technology standard that each student must master touch type by the eighth grade.) We thought that the special coloring and coding on the Kids Keyboard would be very helpful to our kindergarten through second graders. And, we knew by combining the keyboard with our other computer accessories, we could provide our younger students with a safe, computer-based learning center. The students notice the change in how much easier it is for them to type properly. The teachers are happy that their students will not be practicing their 'hunting and pecking' skills moving forward.”
