Computing With Kids by Jinny Gudmundsen

"By the time children enter 6th grade, many are masters of email and instant messaging. They have a fair number of reports and papers that require typing. These factors are great motivation to master the skill of keyboarding.

"With Mavis, children enter a virtual classroom to receive their typing instruction. This environment is serious, but Mavis is not all work and no play. She customizes typing plans for users based on a skills test and their age; and for children, she includes arcade games as part of her suggested regimen. This program offers more customization than any other typing program by not only personalizing the instruction, but by also adjusting the material to be typed to the user’s age level. Mavis constantly offers suggestions and assesses the user’s proficiency and progress. New to this version is the ability to have the instruction in English or Spanish."
