How Keyboard Covers Help You Learn to Type



Teaching students to not look at the keyboard while typing is an instructor’s biggest challenge. The temptation is always there and continually looking down can impair one’s ability to learn quickly and efficiently. Fortunately, the SpeedSkin computer keyboard covers will help block out the letters on the keyboard for more effective typing instruction.

Our polyurethane covers sit atop of both standard and slim keyboards and are entirely opaque. Students of any age will not be able to peek underneath the cover for the letters, and it will prompt them to learn from memory alone. They provide a completely natural feel to the keyboard and are incredibly easy to install and remove.

One of the benefits of our computer keyboard covers is that you will not need to replace them as newer computer models replace current keyboards. Our covers can fit on a variety of keyboards from PC and Mac to Chromebook and other slim laptops.

The SpeedSkin keyboard covers are an excellent resource for any typing class. We offer a variety of prices and offers, depending on the amount you are ordering, and our product is compatible with nearly every typing software on the market.

One of the most exciting benefits to using SpeedSkin covers is their benefit to teachers! Teachers love using SpeedSkin covers because using them typically accomplishes their curriculum goals ahead of schedule and improves their classroom experience – no more tedious monitoring to keep students from peeking. You well know that teachers use cardboard boxes to cover the keyboard or walk around holding papers over the keyboard while students type their drills. Some teachers even slide boxer shorts over the keyboard to prevent peeking! With the SpeedSkin typing covers, these silly tricks will be no more.

If you do not like them, you can return them. SpeedSkin’s 30-day, no-risk return policy permits an ample evaluation period and a no-questions-asked, full refund including your shipping fee.
