The purpose of this session is to demonstrate how TypingClub's new resources can be used to support ISTE Student Standards in the classroom.

TypingClub has recently released six new vocabulary and spelling courses, a digital citizenship course (DC Typing), and an enhanced teacher portal.

Supporting research

REVIEW METHODOLOGY: ISTE Seal of Alignment reviews are conducted by a panel of education and instructional experts. Reviewers use data collected both separately and collectively to determine how a solution addresses specific elements described in each of the indicators of the ISTE Standards. Special instruments are used by reviewers to collect data on potential alignment across all resource materials. Alignment is determined based on the extent to which all or some of specific elements are addressed within the materials. Reviewers conduct regular calibrations to assure the validity and reliability of the results and final review findings are combined for an overall score for
alignment on each individual indicator.

SCOPE OF REVIEW: TypingClub was reviewed for alignment against the ISTE Standards for Students. ISTE reviewers examined all online activities as well as supporting documents such as lesson plans, student handouts and the guidebook.

REVIEW FINDINGS: TypingClub was found to address all indicators for Standards 1 and 2
for Students. TypingClub addresses the ISTE Standards for Students in the following ways:
-Foundational - Resources and activities aligned at the foundational level primarily focus
on skills and knowledge that facilitate skill acquisition to eventually meet ISTE Standard
