Recently some of our library users have been asking us to show them the most basic of computer skills - how to use a mouse and keyboard. There still exists a sizable group of people who have never used computers. Why are they now compelled to learn? Apparently the driver's tests in some jurisdictions are now offered only on computer, there is no paper and pencil option.
Increasingly all sorts of applications, registrations and exams require the use of a computer. See below for some sites we have found useful for mouse and keyboard practice.
Mouse and Keyboard practice:
Memory match with flags for fairly large mouse targets
The Black dog online coloring pages for smaller targets, gaining precision
Try the graffiti wall. Hold down the leftmost button and write your name
Jigsaw puzzle for click and drag
20 questions for lots of click on the little buttons practice
Pacman arrow key practice
Typing letter keys
Animal Planet quizzes for radio button multiple choice questions.
