What could be better than classrooms full of students playing their way to typing mastery? How about entire schools and districts playing their way to typing mastery! Two million users play TypeTastic games each month, and now we’ll bring students, teachers, and administrators together with powerful new tools that turn TypeTastic into a truly district-wide solution.
In our latest update, we’ve added an administrator dashboard that empowers leaders of districts or other large education organizations to manage several schools from one easy-to-use interface. We’ve also partnered with Clever to provide single sign-on (SSO) and simplified rostering. For districts that don’t use Clever, we’ve added CSV importing so that leaders can still upload students en masse.
We’re not done yet, though! Throughout the spring, we’ll be adding even more updates: We’ll be adding new reports to make the administrator dashboard even more powerful. We will also be partnering with Google SSO, Google Classroom and ClassLink to add even more single sign-on options!
As our co-founder, Petteri Väliaho put it, “For years, classroom teachers have been harnessing the power of TypeTastic to help students play their way to mastery of keyboarding, a foundational 21st-century skill. We’re excited to release the newest version with powerful administration tools to help leaders of large education organizations unleash the power of typing throughout their districts.”
We’re not the only ones who are excited about the new TypeTastic—early users are loving it, too! According to Zee Ann Poerio, who teaches at St. Louise de Marillac School in Pittsburgh, PA, “Everything on TypeTastic is a WINNER with my students. This has made a huge difference with my students’ typing skills!”
