Fleksy : Tap-typing reinvented
Fleksy is an application that replaces your device’s on–screen keyboard.
Fleksy uses the familiar QWERTY layout, coupled with the most powerful, patent pending text prediction engine.
It features an autocorrect engine powerful enough to work, even when you are not looking at the screen!
With 114% larger effective typing area, use traditional buttons like the spacebar or master Fleksy’s unique gesture system to space, delete, capitalize and punctuate.
Built from the ground up to simplify typing on every smart device from Android to iOS to your tablet and your phone - even your watch!
May be especially helpful for SEN students

Typing in the Age of iPads
In the age of touchscreens and smartphones, typing drills on a traditional QWERTY keyboard may not be the best use of anybody's time. Instead, new technologies are helping overcome the vexing issues of speed, accuracy, and screen space that are the consequence of importing standard typing techniques to mobile technologies.

Typing and health ... advice
As far as health is concerned, there are many conditions that need to exist if we want to protect our children from problems that may be caused by the inappropriate use of the wrist, fingers, eyes, sitting incorrectly, etc.
It has been found that most children who learn to type at an early age do not report any problems or pain. The fact is that it is very difficult to change habits after being accustomed to typing in a certain way, and this influences our entire posture in front of the screen.

Keyboarding Skills: When Should They Be Taught?
With an enormous computer presence in schools, the question is no longer whether to teach keyboarding but when to teach it.
"Most research supports starting students on formal keyboarding around grade 4," says Theresa Tovey, occupational therapist in Region #4 (Chester, Deep River, and Essex) in Connecticut. "All kids do not have the eye-hand motor coordination to learn keyboarding skills earlier than that."
