“Fast Track” Keyboarding Excitement

September 25th, 2017 Mike Gecawich

A colleague and I recently got into a debate over whether or not race car driving should be considered a sport or not.

While he claimed that the activity is devoid of any skill or talent besides a willingness to risk one’s life, I disagree.

Formula 1 drivers spend years and years training.

They need to be able to handle a car with the utmost attention to detail, and they must hone their skills at constantly walking the line between precision and speed.

As I got to thinking about it, race car driving has a lot in common with typing in this sense.

Students learning to type often have to strike a balance between picking up their WPM without sacrificing form or accuracy.

Bring this analogy to life in your classes with a new activity “Fast Track” Keyboarding Excitement.

This fun game will have all of your students on the edge of their seats as they race around the track.

On your marks, get set, go!
