At-Home Typing Instructions for McKelvie Students

McKelvie Intermediate School has a site license for currently-enrolled students to access a typing program called “Type to Learn 4 Agents of Information”.  Because it is a web-based program, students are also able to legally download and run it from home. This will allow your student to practice his/her typing skills from the comforts of home without any cost to you! Click HERE for instructions on downloading and accessing this program.

If you are unable to get the Type to Learn program to work on your home computer, another alternative would be for you to Google "Free typing programs for education". There are several great options, such as Dance Mat Typing, Typing Club, Typing Web, etc.
