Using the Program

Your classroom setup dictates how you use the program. You may have one or two computers in your classroom or a lab with machines for each student.

If you use the program in a classroom environment, consider creating a learning center with your computers. You can have a single typing center or several smaller ones where students rotate. For either of these setups to function effectively, you must predetermine the course needs of each student and then allocate specific times at a station to your students before they rotate to another center. You may want to provide extra computer time or additional fun activities for those who finish their assignments early.

Keep your students who are not at a typing center busy between rotations with both program content and the activities in this guide.

If students spend too much time on the activities, ask them to suggest ways for using their computer time more effectively.
