WARWICK, R.I. (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- EduTyping, a new and innovative
keyboarding software for schools, is rewriting the rules for students and teachers'
keyboarding classrooms. EduTyping (www.edutyping.com) requires no textbooks or
paper; it's strictly online technology that provides students with the flexibility of doing
assignments at school or home by simply logging in with a user name and password.
"This software is ideal for middle and high school students and gives teachers complete
online management of their students, including access to grades in real time," says
Michael Gecawich, president, B.E. Publishing, and also a former keyboarding instructor.
"In addition, teachers have the ability to control the length of their keyboarding courses."
This revolutionary keyboarding software that can be accessed from school or at home,
offers exciting features for educators and students that include: automatic grading; timed-writing tests; typing games; teen and
tween customized lessons; and a sleek keyboarding tutorial.
Keyboarding lessons are no longer rote and boring. Cool categories such as the practice library and news headline section,
provide students with interesting articles that are fun to read, type and relate to their age/grade level. Students can also
practice typing news articles that are making headlines relevant to their age group, keeping them engaged.
"This is a fantastic program. It really changes the game with the current event typing practices, problem keys and timed
writings," says Sarah Daugherty, Cottonwood Creek Elementary School. "We have been looking for some time for a program
that could be done outside of school with students."
EduTyping works with PC, Mac, Linux and all major Internet browsers and it follows the keyboa
