Best typing tutors for kids
BBC Bitesize Dancemat Typing
Not sure if your child is ready for a typing course yet? Test the waters with BBC Bitesize's Dance Mat Typing. It's a completely free product, useful as an introduction to touch typing and for practice but not a complete, structured course your child can follow. There are four levels to play, each divided into three stages, and you start by learning the home row keys, with new letters introduced as you progress. At the end of each level there's a typing-speed test and reward. It's engaging, colourful and perfect for kids, but it doesn't offer in-depth learning.
Pricing: Free to access.
Best for: offering your child the chance to try some touch-typing before you commit to a paid subscription or typing course.
