The Windows Typing Instructor for Kids Platinum 5 from Individual Software is an educational, entertaining, and motivating typing program. It teaches your kids all keyboard basics, proper hand positions, speed, and accuracy. There are 160 lessons in English and Spanish. The typing instructor includes multi-level games, island adventure themes, creative lessons and exercises, typing challenges and tests, and more.

Multi-Level Games Make Learning Easy

Typing with Sharks
This action-packed, underwater adventure helps kids learn challenging keys on the keyboard. They type words quickly to zap hungry sharks and piranhas before they attack their submarine. The deeper they dive, the harder it is to escape, especially from the electric eel, giant squid, and the boss shark. These sea creatures cast out multiple words all at once, repeatedly. Kids earn points by successfully typing all of the characters, and advancing to the next level of play, deeper down into the depths of the sea.
Flotsam Fighter
Kids use their Flotsam Fighter Space Ship to clean-up space debris (flotsam), and save all four planets in the Aeon Galaxy, by zapping space debris from around the planets. The more debris they collect, the more intergalactic credits they earn. Eight challenging levels of play help them develop their typing speed and accuracy.
Xtreme Typing
This fast moving game teaches kids to keep their fingers on the keyboard to move their motorcycle across the desert, and through the heart of the city. When they type accurately and faster than their target words per minute, they see a motorcycle stunt fest. Their bike makes several jumps, flies off ramps, rolls over limousines, and flies over buses. If they type fast and accurately, they will see a grand finale stunt at the end of the course.
Tomb Typer
This 3D interactive game helps kids to improve their typing skills and use their wits. They search an ancient Egyptian tomb by correctly typing words and characters, to navigate their way through two levels of exploration for treasure. Each level poses a more difficult challenge. It is easy to get lost, so kids can refer to the map to find their way through the maze. There are keys that unlock doors, jewels worth bonus points, and coins to increase their game life level.
30+ Game Challenges
This typing instructor for kids has over 30+ game challenges. Kids can play games in a variety of ways by selecting options from the drop down menu, including words per minute (wpm), level of difficulty, and in some games, select an opponent. Games include multiple levels of play and points scored, so that kids are motivated to win the first level, advance to the next level, and achieve a high score.

Island Adventure Theme Motivates Kids to Improve Typing Skills

Reward-Seeking Program
This program offers rewards every step of the way. Kids visit distinct lands for lessons, challenges, tests, and games. They search for treasures, earn points, and add gold and jewels to their treasure box, on a journey to reach the castle, and become the ruler of Typer Island. Once they reach the castle, they advance to the Lost City, for more challenges and games.
Explore Distinct Lands
Kids visit different places like the Old West, on the water, in the air, over the edge, and under the sea. They can take a break from lessons and go to Explorer Isle to play games, or to Story Lagoon to practice typing stories from classic literature and fairy tales.
Castle Adventures
Once kids get to the castle, they can play new games, like Tomb Typer and Xtreme Typing, and they can go to the Lost City for Treasure Quest and the challenging Ziggy.
30+ Game Challenges
This typing instructor uses "Entertainment Explosion" to make learning to type user-friendly. Kids can play games in a variety of ways by selecting options from the game settings menu. Arcade-style play and multiple levels make games challenging.
The Mysterious Lost City
Kids get to visit the Lost City once they complete the lessons, tests, and challenges of all five lands on Typer Island and Capture the Castle. In the Lost City they can explore the ruins and the shipwreck, and play Treasure Quest, the first typing adventures game, and the challenging arcade action game, Ziggy.
