WHEN PLAYING GAMES ALWAYS USE A BLIND KEYBOARD.
Here are some of our favourite FREE games Starting with easier games and work up to the more advanced.
This is a simple game that can be played once students know the home row of keys. Start with the Easy level.
This is an ideal game for students using typing solutions that teach the home keys first. For example, Typingclub.com or English Type. Ironically Typing.com does not teach the keys in this order and so is not compatible with this game, even though it is found on their site.
An addictive shooting game.
This starts easier and get harder, but students need to know the whole keyboard before attempting this game.
This is fun as students can compete against one another.
Students can choose the Lesson and difficulty that best suits their ability. To compete against others, they must select the same lesson.
