  1. some great thoughts 4OQ on why you would write in your books or on the computer. One boy commented that he might find a game to help improve his typing. My daughter uses the BBC type dancemat to help her, she really enjoys it and her keyboard skills are really improving! It is good fun and has lots of great noises and music, so you may need headphones in the classroom! http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/typing/

  2. This is a really interesting video.
    I work with learners with dyslexia and am very keen to help them improve their typing skills so that they can compose more easily.
    I’m hoping that soon speech to voice software will be good enough for them to talk rather than writing all their thoughts out.
    Thank you.
