QwertyTown is a web-based keyboarding app that teaches typing and online communication skills. Students are driven to succeed by QwertyTown's games, rewards, social motivation, powerful teacher reports, and a deep understanding of how keyboarding skills improve their lives in and out of school.
QwertyTown was created by Second Nature Learning. Founded by award-winning educators, Second Nature Learning’s mission is simple: to help students achieve literacy in the modern, digital world.
It provides a safe, teacher-controlled environment where students can communicate with their classmates, teachers, and friends. While becoming fluent with a keyboard, students are learning how to interact in a digital environment. This environment prepares them with a fundamental skill set essential for academic and professional success in the 21st century.
Students that regularly use QwertyTown are more proficient and successful in the digital learning environment.
Whether they are winning a Head 2 Head typing match against classmates or earning medals completing lessons, QwertyTown students earn QwertyCoins as they learn. Those QwertyCoins can be spent in our Avatar Store. Students can even unlock communication tools so they can share their successes with their friends.
QwertyTown equips teachers, administrators, and parents with tools that make it easy to monitor and manage each student’s overall experience. Parents and teachers can customize performance benchmarks in lessons and level challenges.
QwertyTown delivers detailed data about users’ performance in a fast and easy format. Peruse class progress from your dashboard or download a spreadsheet to collect data.
QwertyTown offers a simple way to manage student logins that securely syncs student rosters from school districts’ student information systems (SIS) to QwertyTown.
School districts rest easy knowing that their student rosters are updated automatically in a secure environment. Imagine never worrying about adding new students or shuffling transferred students mid-year! Not only that, but Clever is completely FERPA-compliant. It works with every major SIS.
QwertyTown uses Clever to auto-integrate with most student information systems, so setup is a breeze. Clever also offers Google SSO, Chromebook auto login, badges, and more.JOIN CLEVER NOW
