I just got hired to teach HS computers. One of the classes is typing mixed
with learning MS Word - but with an emphasis on touch typing.

HOW in the world do I motivate a bunch of 9th graders to learn to touch
Some of them are fluent in phone typing, some have no access to tech at
home, not smart phones and not computers.  A mixed bunch, and the
phone-typers are likely less interested in learning to touch type because
they already know how to hunt and peck.
