Keyboarding Without Tears Notification

  • We are in the beginning stages of implementing Keyboarding Without Tears, a web-based curriculum for grades K–5 that teaches typing, general computer readiness, digital citizenship, and online test prep.  It has been brought to our attention that elementary parents/guardians may have been inadvertently contacted by Keyboarding Without Tears on 9/21/17, with the following message:

    Dear Parent or Guardian,

    In our class this year, (first name of student) is using Keyboarding Without Tears to learn keyboarding skills, computer literacy and digital citizenship. One of the features of the program is that students can use the student license they have from school for practice outside the school. To access the program, you will need a laptop or desktop with internet access.

    Your child’s Secret Code is: (secret code)

    You can start the program by clicking on this link http://program.kwtears.com/?homeUseToken=. It will launch in your default browser. Bookmark this page for easy access.

    Once the program has launched then your child keys in the Secret Code and will be able to practice.

    We recommend that your child work on Keyboarding Without Tears for no more than 10 minutes per day outside the classroom. Speed, fluency and accuracy will develop with regular practice over a sustained period of time.

    To learn more about the Keyboarding Without Tears curriculum please go to www.kwtears.com

    If you have any questions about launching the program, please email Keyboarding Without Tears at: technology@hwtears.com

    Happy Keyboarding!

     

    Keyboarding Without Tears is provided to Whitesboro CSD through the Mohawk Regional Information Center (MORIC).  During the implementation by MORIC and Keyboarding Without Tears, the emails were sent via an automated process that was unexpected at this time.  We apologize for any confusion.  

    A formal introduction to Keyboarding Without Tears will be sent home with students in the coming weeks, after they have begun using the program at school. If you have further questions regarding this matter you can contact us at infotech@wboro.org

    Thank you,
