Touch Typing for Kids- Keyboard Ninja

Touch Typing for Kids- Keyboard Ninja


Hello everyone. It is James from the Visual
Impairment Team in Devon. In this video I am going to demonstrate a
touch typing game called Keyboard Ninja which has been designed for children but is also
entertaining enough to be loved by adults to! The best way to find it is to search for “Keyboard
Ninja” in Google. It can be found on the website typing.com. Because of sound effects, it is difficult
to describe the game as I am playing and so I will try to either play the game or describe
it. Now, onto the game itself. You are a monkey who is slicing up fruit. Each piece of fruit is a different letter
on your keyboard. If we have a quick look at the settings, this
game has sections that focus on different areas and rows on the keyboard as described
above. There are three levels of difficulty or speeds
in this game; Easy, Medium and Hard. You can control the volume of the sound effects and music. The screen displays how many lives you have. Watch out though as
the game includes bombs that randomly appear with letters and you must not type these letters. Let’s have a look at the easy level And the hard level. Pros It is free and can be accessed in any browser. Entertaining animations and sounds that will
motivate younger children. It has a real sense of fun. Five focused areas; All letters, home row,
top row, bottom row, number pad which is terrific. Three levels; easy, medium and hard. The game can be made larger using the Zoom
facility in a browser Cons I think that it is too busy or complicated
for a child with a visual impairment. Also you might have to watch a video ad before
you play it. There are not lots of statistics at the end
of the game. Can’t pause the game for any reason. As the game focuses on keyboard rows, you
do not type words, just random letters and punctuation. Thanks for watching my video tour of Keyboard
Ninja. I like this game and think that it is great
fun. I hope that you will enjoy it. If this video has helped you, please share
it with your friends, colleagues and family. I have created lots of other videos relating
to touch typing and there is a link to my playlist below. If you have any comments or questions or anything
