Keyboard Town PALS
Designed to teach kids typing fundamentals within 60 minutes, Keyboard Town PALS helps develop the essential skills for succeeding in school and communicating effectively in the digital world. Rather than run through endless drills, the Purposeful, Associative Learning System (PALS) focuses on mnemonic memory devices and ignores students' mistakes, allowing them to learn key placement without getting discouraged. During each exercise, on-screen puppets act out interesting stories while pupils type in tandem, and after one hour, most are often able to recall the 30 letters and symbols on a standard keyboard without looking at the QWERTY tattoos on their fingers. Best suited for ages 6–12—including those with learning disabilities—programs are available in Spanish, English, and French.
