What is KAZ?

KAZ's inclusive Mainstream and SEN/Dyslexia touch typing software have proven so effective that it has been nominated for several academic awards.

The course is a tutorial in itself and consists of 5 modules - pupils start at the top and work their way through each module in order.

The program is presented in a simple and light-hearted manner and has three main attributes:

1. A proven Accelerated Learning teaching method incorporating 'brain balance', teaching the skill quickly and easily. The method uses five scientifically structured phrases to teach the a-z keys in bite-size modules.

2. A comprehensive and easy-to-use teacher admin panel allows for uploading spellings of the week or problematic words, enabling pupils to learn to spell whilst touch typing.

3. A specialised ©Preference Screen developed with guidance from the Dyslexia Research Trust minimises visual disturbances and tailors the course for maximum visibility and comfort for pupils who need it.

All licences include both primary and secondary options.

KAZ works across various devices, and being online can be accessed from school and home, allowing learning to continue beyond the classroom. A download edition is also available when internet access is restricted or unavailable.

Due to numerous teacher requests, we will soon release our new 'National Ofqual Regulated Touch Typing Qualifications' (Level 1 - 3 credits and Level 2 - 5 credits).

Both levels will be available for funding in the UK via the ESFA.

Recommended Usage

The course comprises of five easy to follow modules, which can be broken down to suit attention span or time allowing.

Module 1- Flying Start – Explains how the course works and only takes a few minutes.

Module 2 - The Basics – teaches the a-z keys using 5 scientifically structured phrases. This module can be broken down into five 15/20 minute lessons.

Module 3 - Just Do It - offers additional vocabulary to build ‘muscle memory’.

Module 4 - And the Rest – teaches the number and punctuation keys.

Module 5 - Speed Builder – 15/20 minutes of practice per day will help build speed and accuracy, showing results within a couple of weeks.

All licences include a teacher’s lesson plan.

I have been using KAZ for the past few years individually. I have had a substantial improvement with my typing speed and accuracy. I never typed by touch and was typing by sight. Since using this system, I have learned to touch type and my speed and accuracy improve every day.

Used KAZ’s Mainstream and SEN/Dyslexia Touch Typing Tutor for 4-6 months

Mar 2021

Kaz Type is a well presented and proven method for developing touch typing skills. I would highly recommend this to parents who are wanting their children to develop typing skills.

Michael found KAZ’s Mainstream and SEN/Dyslexia Touch Typing Tutor:
  • Significantly improves attainment
    My 11 year old daughter learned how to touch type using Kaz Type in only a few weeks. The software was engaging and we found she looked forward to the daily sessions. Being a self taught typist myself, I was amazed at how quickly my daughter progressed to fluently touch typing her homework.
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    In school, it is expected that the majority of work will be completed and submitted electronically. Being able to touch type gives students a huge advantage over their peers and allows them to produce work faster and more accurately. Having touch typing skills will serve our children well not only in education, but as they move into employment this will be a vital and sought after skill by employers.
  • Significantly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    I found that now my daughter can touch type, she is able to complete her written assignments more quickly and accurately than before.
  • Slightly reduces teacher workload

    Hand writing is difficult for my children so Kaz has been great for giving them confidence and improving the amount of work they can get done.
  • Significantly reduces attainment gap
    There's such an advantage to be able to type as quickly as you can think.
  • Slightly improves behaviour or wellbeing
    Wellbeing improves because of the increase in confidence
  • Moderately reduces teacher workload
    It allows the children to work more independently

It is one of the few touch typing platforms which cater for a neuro-diverse audience and that is very important to us. They have a lovely balance of video, audio and kinaesthetic input.

Reply from KAZ:Thank you Simon and congratulation on winning the KAZ Touch Typing Tournament 2021/22. I hope ESMS will be defending their trophy!

I absolutely love Kaz-Type. As a proficient typist myself, in an age when working from home and home learning has been forced upon every family on a global scale, digital literacy is as critical as reading, writing and being fluent in functional arithmetic. Having keyboard skills is central or core to everyone's digital futures.
