If you have Spanish-speaking students, or would like to introduce the Spanish language and the use of typing special international characters, our Spanish Curriculum offers a great opportunity to your keyboarding experience. (Because this curriculum is not adaptive, we do not recommend using it with Grades K-2.)

With the Spanish Curriculum, students will be typing lessons that are wholly in Spanish.

Using an international keyboard simulator, you will be able to view an easy-to-use guide on how to type the special characters that appear in Spanish text. To access this, have your students select the small black keyboard button at the top-right page of their dashboard.

Students can choose which system they're working on, Mac or PC/Chromebook, to view the button combinations needed to type in the special characters.




How do I enable Spanish Curriculum?

 

You can enable Spanish Curriculum for an entire class, or for a specific student/group of students.  Please do note, however, that Spanish Curriculum uses capital letters, special characters, and the entire keyboard. If you have students who struggle with these, it may be best to let them earn experience points in the main Keyboarding Foundations curriculum before attempting our Spanish curriculum.

For Class:

 First, select your Class

Then, select Settings.

From here, select Curriculum

Now, scroll down to Spanish Lessons.

You can set the number of Experience Points required for students to unlock the Spanish Curriculum Lessons or simply enable it right away for them by entering 0

 

For specific students:

How can my students have an entire Spanish interface?


Perhaps you have a student who does not speak English and requires all of their instructions to be in Spanish. You or your student can do this from the student end. If you choose to set this for the student, you will need to log in as that student. Students can also do this as soon as they log in themselves.

To log in as a student, select your class

Then, click your Students tab.

Select the check box next to the student name you wish to update to trigger the fly-out menu. From here, select Login As.

Now, select the student's name in the upper right hand corner.

This will trigger a drop-down menu. From here, choose Select Language.

Now, select Spanish.

After this, you'll see that their curriculum instructions have been set to Spanish.

Should you want to change them back to English for any reason, you can do this the exact same way you have set them to Spanish.
