OKCPS Key bee
Why a Keyboarding Bee?
Looking at future ready skills for our students, keyboarding is a must. Not only is it an essential skill for most career fields, it is now also a required skill for every student in our district. ALL tests are now administered online and students that cannot type are at a steep disadvantage.
The OKCPS Keyboarding Bee uses the program of Typing.com and it is designed to be motivational and fun! Each lesson within the platform has fun animated intro videos and sprinkles awards and games among the learning. At our keyboarding bee pilot school, F.D. Moon Academy, the students and teachers were overwhelmingly supportive of the event and surprised at the advancement of the student's keyboarding skills. Their school champion was typing almost 40 words per minute with 100% accuracy in just nine weeks!
Sign up for our "Mission Possible" and your students can excel in keyboarding too! Check out the Curriculum page!
