Elementary students in Roanoke County now have a web based typing program called Typing Instructor. Students will be able to login and practice keyboarding both at school and at home. The links to the web site will be available on the instruction section of the Roanoke County Public Schools website and are also linked below.

http://rcps.typinginstructor.com Recommended for ages 8 and up as it is more self paced.
At the moment, we are waiting for the newest upload of students to be completed. Some students, though, may have already logged in over the summer and explored the programs since letters were sent to parents on the last day of school with logins and passwords. We will be sending you an updated list of student information just as soon as it’s ready.
Meanwhile, if you would like to explore the programs and you are a Roanoke County Teacher, there are test logins available. Let me know if you need one.
