Description

The Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing software has long been gaining popularity among children and adults alike. The Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing software aims at being engaging even for adults who are looking to improve or build their typing skills by introducing games and interactivity. However, children need special attention and a bit of a different approach. As an answer to the needs of that niche, there are also Mavis Beacon programs specially designed for children.

Made for Kids

The Mavis Beacon Keyboarding Kidz typing software has been designed specifically with children and tweens in mind. The manufacturer has described the software as suitable for children ages 7 and up, but that should not be viewed as a strict limitation. The software might not be too well suited to teenagers, as it has a strong emphasis on games and other activities that might not be engaging enough for that age group. However, the Mavis Beacon Keyboarding Kidz software is appropriate for tweens (between ages 10-12) and could be a fun addition to your child’s game set. The program has been designed for young people who would like to improve their keyboarding skills or learn how to touch type from scratch.

Easy to Follow Lessons

What can definitely be viewed as an upside to the Mavis Beacon Keyboarding Kidz software, is that it aims to build children’s motivation for learning how to type. After all, nobody enjoys dull, theoretical lessons and that is especially applicable to children. It is always easier to learn when the primary activity feels like something light and fun, which is what Mavis Beacon Keyboarding Kidz software has attempted to do by using relatable characters and an interesting, yet realistic plot to their learning program.

Cool and Engaging Design

The Mavis Beacon Keyboarding Kidz software is a game at its core and so it uses characters to stimulate your child into getting engaged with the program, while typing more frequently and with better success. The main characters in the Mavis Beacon Keyboarding Kidz software are a boy and girl named Mavis and Dex, who have an after-school job at a movie concession stand. They are having a difficult time dealing with all the customers in between shows and would like some help with the orders. Once your child has learned the keys from A to Z, he or she will be able to assist Mavis and Dex, all the while combining games with typing. Another positive aspect of the character usage in the Mavis Beacon Keyboarding Kidz software, is that while your child is learning how to type, Mavis and Dex are there every step of the way. The manufacturer’s goal is to boost children’s confidence and reassure them of their own capabilities, which is certainly a very positive approach to learning.
