Wicked Problem Project: Motivating Students to Learn to Type Accurately and Efficiently

988 views

Published on

A project I implemented with 3rd and 4th grade students to improve their motivation to use Type to Learn 4 outside of computer class, and to apply the home row position outside of the Type to Learn program. This is a project I developed during a graduate class (CEP 812). However, it has made a significant difference in my students' learning.
