Strategies for Better Typing

Okay, so you figured out that you're not that great a typist. What can you do about it?

To be an excellent typist, you need to do more than learn the position of the keys on the keyboard. You must form good typing habits, and try to avoid falling into bad habits.

Here are a few typing habits you should cultivate:

  • Position. Proper body/hand/arm position will decrease errors and fatigue. Keep your feet flat on the floor.

  • Peeking - Don't Do It! As tempting as it might be, don't look at the keyboard when typing. The goal is to force your brain to learn where the keys are without looking.

    Peeking sabotages this effort. Once you've learned the position of the keys, force your hands to make the corrections without help from your eyes.

  • Practice. The only way to "train" the neural connections between your brain and your fingers is to practice a lot. With enough practice you'll be able to touch type, meaning you never need to look at the keyboard. So practice, practice, and practice some more.

Proper hand position hasn't changed much in decades. Below is a keyboard typing chart from 1937. Listed on each finger of the chart are the keys that finger presses when typing.

It's the same as what's used today. Cool, huh?

So as you practice with these fun typing games, and when typing at other times, keep the good habits in mind. If you find yourself falling into bad typing habits, make corrections. Stay focused on improvement, and you will get better at typing.

GAME TIP #1: Many games on this site such as Curveball were built with Adobe Flash. To play these games, you must allow the free Adobe Flash Player to run in your browser. If you don't see an animation in the red rectangle above, click in the red rectangle and activate your Flash Player. Then the Flash-based games should open for you.

If you see a message that the Adobe Flash Player is "blocked", go to your browser's Settings page and change Block to Ask First, if possible.

If the red rectangle is empty, your browser might not have the Flash Player. To check this, follow the steps on Adobe's Flash Player Help page.

GAME TIP #2: If you cannot get the Flash-based brain games to work, try the HTML5 brain games instead. HTML5 games do not use the Adobe Flash Player. They work in modern browsers automatically. All the HTML5 games are listed on this page.
