Chromebook Lesson Ideas
Typing for Elementary Students
About the Project
Much like handwriting, typing is an essential life skill that students must learn as quickly as possible. Chromebooks are compatible with many free resources and programs that can help students improve their typing speed and proficiency. Typing practice is a great enrichment and reward activity once other work has been completed. Regular practice is key.
