Kris Peterson and Typing Agent
As we get started, just a little about myself, I am the CEO of Typing Agent. I also taught keyboarding and technology in a Seattle area school for over 18 years. Teaching gave me a lot of insight when it came to designing the program, in fact it’s what inspired me to do it, and as the technology and needs have evolved Typing Agent has turned into one of the most sophisticated and effective typing tutors for schools and districts.
Right now, there’s a hive of activity at Typing Agent, we are preparing for users to experience our new innovative keyboarding program with the launch of Typing Agent 5.0. We didn’t just make a few improvements, we started from the ground up with input from our teachers and district administrators. Not only will it have a fresh new look, but students will experience improvements through gamification and differentiated learning. Teachers and administrators will get better insights into how students are progressing through the curriculum. We also understand that each student and school are unique in their needs, so customization remains a priority throughout. At the core of it all, is ADA accommodations built for a better experience on all levels of interaction with the program.
Here are some of the highlights of TA 5.0:
- Adaptive Curriculum Technology
- New Digital Citizenship Curriculum
- Beginning and Advanced Learn to Type Code
- More Student Incentives
- ADA Compliance
- Enhanced User Experience
It’s an exciting time and we can’t wait for the big reveal! Get ready for the new TA 5.0 launch this summer 2018!
