All the Right Type 4 Online teaches touch typing in a visually exciting and engaging way. This no-nonsense keyboarding program uses classroom-tested methodology to develop keyboarding skills. Using the “sequenced” learning method, students will learn to touch type quickly and efficiently.
Grades: K and up (all ages)
Cost: $ 20.00 per student for the school year
The program works from the Home screen/Campus page where users can easily navigate from lesson to lesson. ATRT 4 online has four types of lessons that support immediate reinforcement of any new keys introduced in the learning lab. “Sequencing” is turned on, so students will follow the blinking building which prompts them to the next lesson in a proven and time-tested learning order.
There are two types of games: Lesson Games which follow the same letters that students have learned, and Themed Games that involve all the letters and numbers on the keyboard for general practice after all keys have been learned. In themed games they have also incorporated basic math keyboarding (number-pad) drills as well as “dictation” or “note-taking” type games to reinforce keyboarding without text to copy. All game results are tracked into the database for record keeping.

Teaching Typing to a Student with Dyslexia
Our teacher, Anne-Marie Semke, comments that her student with dyslexia did not progress while using All the Right Type (ATRT). She purchased a subscription for Touch-type, Read and Spell (TTRS) and said, “It has been an excellent help with his dyslexia.” ”
Referring to ATRT, she said, “Although it helped him master QWERTY, he wasn’t really progressing. The TTRS was great for his dyslexia; I highly recommend it for students with special needs, as it is meaningfully and usefully different from a traditional learn to type program.”
For more information about this subscription, please contact Jenn McDonald, our Learning Services support teacher.
Free Typing Programs
- We have had a recommendation for a free typing program called TypingClub, which you may wish to check out. To read about it, you may go to Typing Club blog article.
- Also, a parent emailed to recommend Dance Mat Typing from BBC. She said this is the most engaging one she has come across. If you enjoy rock ‘n roll, you will enjoy the music in this site. Here are some explanatory guides for Dance Mat Typing.
This is a free site where students can practise their typing and also learn Bible verses at the same time. They can choose and save verses into the site. The app can be used on Android, Kindle, PC, iPad and iPhone. There is an activity for (1) typing the verse, (2) memorizing it, and (3) mastering it (i.e. typing it from memory). The site will show typing speed.
