ACCELERATED LEARNING is the most advanced teaching and learning method in use today. It is a 'total system' for speeding up and enhancing the learning process. Based on the latest brain research, it has been proven time and again to increase learning effectiveness.
KAZ is a professional ACCELERATED LEARNING typing tutor, especially designed for schools and further education. It was scientifically developed by the same course team of experts responsible for producing over 55 RSA/NVQ level computer skills courses. The revolutionary method has dramatically reduced the time and eliminated the boredom associated with learning to type. It offers students from 6 years upwards an enjoyable method of learning easily, efficiently and effortlessly - whilst teaching them to type quickly, accurately and with rhythm and good posture.The Method
Unlike other typing tutors based on repetitive exercises and distracting and time consuming games, KAZ's unique, patented and revolutionary ACCELERATED LEARNING method uses 'brain balance' - i.e. it engages the major senses of sight, sound and touch simultaneously, radically enhancing memory retention and recall - which is why it is so effective. Using just 11 words in 5 easily memorised, scientifically structured and trademarked phrases, the revolutionary method trains the fingers on both hands to work symmetrically and simultaneously, whilst teaching students the position of the A-Z keys. No other typing tutor works in this way.
The program solely focuses on teaching typing. It does not try to teach typing along with other subjects such as English, as this just splits concentration and interferes with core learning. Learning to type correctly requires full concentration but needs to be presented with a lighthearted approach, so that learning is enjoyable. KAZ successfully manages to combine the two by cleverly entwining its focused teaching technique with amusing animation.
Typically, the programme takes just 90 minutes to teach the A-Z keys and approximately 4 hours to cover the whole keyboard. All of which can be taught in short modules to fit in and around busy curriculum timetables - making KAZ the ideal choice for any school, especially where time is limited and fast results are needed.
The program has a simple, fresh and uncluttered presentation style, an easy to read typeface, high foreground and background colour contrast and provision of speaking key's option covering the A-Z keys.The Course Consists of 5 Modules:-
Once the first phrase is completed, a real sense of achievement is gained, motivating the student to continue onto the next phrase and so on. Each section offers encouragement and instruction in short lessons in order to hold interest and concentration. The student is allowed to progress at their own pace, acquiring the skill and gaining speed and accuracy without even realising it.
Touch typing removes a barrier to creative writing, as the need to keep alternating between screen and keyboard is eliminated and the students effectively 'think type' words straight onto the screen without being aware of what their fingers are doing. They are in the 'flow' of full creative writing at speed.
With its high quality interactive multimedia training 'with both text and audio instruction and a multi-sensory approach throughout' KAZ is also special needs enabled and is widely used by dyslexic students. It is designed to not only challenge the brightest students but also offers extra help to those who need it.
With motivational materials and a comprehensive Teacher's Administrator Pack (enabling monitoring of student progress, i.e. speed, accuracy and lessons completed), the ability to import the school database and group users in minutes, sample lesson plans and Teacher's Guide - it's never been easier for teachers to administer, monitor and teach students how to type.Software Platforms
