Type to Learn 4

Type to Learn 4 : Home Use

Cheyenne Mountain School District’s elementary schools have purchased keyboarding software for use throughout our elementary schools.  The license allows for a free home-use option for students, which is associated with your child’s class.  Although home use is entirely optional, it can provide a fun and challenging way to develop the important skill of keyboarding.  

About Type to Learn 4

The ability to keyboard with speed and accuracy is a critical, lifelong skill in today’s computer based society.  Type to Learn provides an integrated cycle of review, demonstration, practice, and assessment, with continuous reinforcement of home row positioning, teaches proper fingering for each key with ample opportunity for skills practice. The program emphasizes both accuracy and words per minute speed, and provides each student with individualized remediation and goals for success.

How to Use at Home

The user downloads the application once to their local machine. From then on, the user launches Type to Learn 4 right from their computer, NOT from a website. An internet connection is needed so the program can access the student’s data from the Sunburst server. After downloading and installing the program, login to the application with the student’s username, password, and account code.
