Typing Turtle

Typing Turtle is an interactive touch typing trainer for the XO laptop.

It features a sequence of lessons designed to gradually introduce students to touch typing, teaching them a few keys at a time until they have mastered the entire keyboard. Fun graphics, sounds and characters make for an entertaining experience. An on-screen keyboard with overlaid hand positions shows the correct way to press each key, encouraging good typing habits.
