About this camp

At FunTech, we believe that proper computer habits start in childhood. Learning correct touch-typing techniques and proper posture will improve efficiency while preventing repetitive strain injury (RSI) and lower back pain. It’s a must for everyone living in the 21st century.

During this course your child will benefit from a combination of tutor aid and their own learning style. FunTyper automatically measures for an appropriate level of accuracy and muscle memory before releasing new letters into the game. No two children will have the same experience, but everyone will learn techniques to carry into the future!

Repetition is key in building the muscle memory needed for touch typing. It’s tough, but once it’s been established for each key position the benefits are clear: fewer mistakes, increased efficiency, no more hunting for keys, all resulting in less time at the keyboard. When all fingers are used correctly, no digits are overstressed, reducing the risks of RSI and improving spelling.

Our tutors are superb motivators, and we’ve provided a ton of challenges and activities to keep kids interested while they learn. Tutors keep a sharp eye out to make sure correct typing technique and good posture are always adhered to. Our touch-typing lessons for kids are fun, interactive, and will keep your child entertained and busy all day! 

Your child’s FunTyper account will remain active for a further two months, so they are able to consolidate and continue from where they left off. 
We recommend twenty minutes three times per week. 
FunTyper is available at www.funtyper.com as an online license.
