Kids' typing tutor
As someone who learned to "type" with two fingers, hunt-and-peck style, and then unlearn that to develop proper typing skills, I've always been keen that my children should learn to type properly. We used to use Knowledge Adventure's Jump Ahead Typing, which is good but which died horribly when we switched to Windows XP. We've now replaced Jump Ahead Typing with Grass Software's GS Typing Tutor. It's very good: simple, effective and fun (or so the kids assure me) ... and it works on all recent flavours of Windows. Recommended.
