As we work with media specialists and technology integration specialists in schools across the country, one of the most common requests we receive is for recommendations for online typing programs.  Growing up, StarrMatica’s CEO, Emily Starr, spent her weekends in the typing classroom, and eventually the computer lab, of her business education teaching mother.  Emily learned to type at an early age and believes that typing is an essential life skill no matter what a student’s chosen career path may be.

In recognition of its importance in an increasingly technological society, it often falls to elementary educators to begin to lay the foundations for later typing success in a world where students are used to using only their thumbs for texting!

While typing isn’t a curricular focus of StarrMatica, as your digital content teaching partner, we are glad to provide these typing content recommendations in the hopes they will help you make learning to type an enjoyable experience for your students.
