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 users age level. Mavis constantly offers suggestions
and assesses the users proficiency and progress. New to this version is
the ability to have the instruction in English or Spanish."
