Online Keyboarding Practice Sites for Beginning Typers

Listed below are a few online keyboarding practice websites (for PC or Mac computers, not trialed on iPad) that introduces the keyboard in a sequential way for beginning typists. The last website, Peter’s Keyboarding Lessons provides a visual of the keyboard and fingers for those students who benefit from visual support when learning the 10 finger typing technique. Posting this image above the keyboard has helped some students with learning the keyboard to reduce their reliance on looking at the keyboard (a huge no-no in 5th grade keyboarding classes!).
