Typing Practice: Introducing Typing Ninja

As a parent, I’m always on the lookout for fun and educational tools to help my 7-year-old son improve his skills. One of his current obsessions is computers, so I decided to create something specifically tailored to his interests - Typing Ninja. This app is designed to help people of all ages practice their typing skills in an engaging way.

What is Typing Ninja?

Typing Ninja is a user-friendly app that can be accessed both on your phone and desktop. The best part? It’s completely free! Whether you’re a beginner or looking to improve your speed and accuracy, this app has got you covered.

Word Lists for Every Level

To ensure an effective learning experience, each level in Typing Ninja comes with its own word list. Every single word in each list has been manually checked by me personally. This means that you can rest assured knowing that the words provided are accurate and suitable for all ages.

Currently, the practice words consist of only three and four-letter words. While I want to add longer words into the game, I personally review each one, and longer words means a greater number of words to assess.

Under the Hood: JavaScript and reef.js

Behind the scenes, Typing Ninja relies on JavaScript and reef.js technology. Once loaded onto your device, everything happens right in your web browser - no need for additional installations or downloads.

What’s Next?

While typing practice is essential for improving language and computer skills, I believe that there’s much more we can do with technology to enhance education. That’s why my next project will focus on developing a math game specifically designed to help kids practice their multiplication tables.

By combining the power of technology with educational concepts, I hope to create a fun and interactive experience that will make learning math not only effective but enjoyable as well.

So stay tuned for future updates, and in the meantime, why not give Typing Ninja a try? It’s free, accessible, and designed to help you become a typing pro!
