Getting started with Typio
When a student user logs into Typio, then are brought to the Main Menu. This is where they can choose Typing Pet, Basic Modes Settings or Logout/Exit. Use the Up and Down arrows to navigate and press Enter to make a choice.
If a student wants to raise their Typing Pet, choose that option. If they would rather type without the pet, choose Basic Modes. The entirely of the included Typio lessons can be found in both Typing Pet and Basic Modes.
Progressing Through the Keyboard
From the Typing Pet menu, choose Training, then Progress Training. From here, Typio will introduce each new key with a tutorial then present a lesson for that key. If the student meets the their Accuracy and WPM goals (found Settings), they will be introduced to the next key. A student could complete all of Typio just using the Progress Training mode…but they should really explore the other modes as well.
After choosing Basic Modes, choose Progress Mode. This will operate the same as Progress Training mentioned above but without the Typing Pet being present. A student could complete all of Typio jut using Progress Mode but we encourage them to check out the other modes as well.
From the Typing Pet menu, choose Training, then any training mode.
- Practice Training: This mode lets users choose any included Typio lesson.
- Basic Training: This mode lets a user practice the lesson for the current key they are learning. It’s the same lesson they would type in Progress Mode.
- Custom Training: Choosing this mode allows students to type a custom lesson sent to them from your Teacher Dashboard.
- Mini Training: This mode contains 10 randomized words based on the current letter being learned. It’s a great way to mix things up and provide quick wins for your typing students.
From the Basic Modes menu, choose any of the following modes:
- Lesson Practice This mode lets users choose any included Typio lesson or a custom lesson sent to them from your Teacher Dashboard.
- Explore Mode: This is where a student can explore the keyboard freely.
- Mini Review: This mode contains 10 randomized words based on the current letter being learned. It’s a great way to mix things up and provide quick wins for your typing students.
- Free Type: This mode allows a student to type anything they would like for a certain amount of time (found in Settings). At the end of the time they receive a typing score.
