Type to Learn- Typing at Home

Type to Learn

Last year, the Darien Public Schools rolled out a new typing program in school for students in Grades 3-5.  We started using the program at school today. This program is available for home. Below are the directions to install the program on your home computer.  Once the software is installed your child will be able to access their Typing Account via the TTL4 icon.  Whether your child uses the program at home or school the software will work with them at their own pace and save all of their progress.

Please note that due to the multi-media rich nature of this program, the software you are installing is quite large and may take some time to install.  See notes below.

If you would like more information on the program, you may download the user guide:                  http://www.mediafire.com/view/a7bgfcve9koxp0a/ttl4help.pdf
