Just doing typing practice without an aim can be a bit boring.
Once your students have some basic typing skills, you can use a tool like Pidgeon for group chat, which is a fun way of sending messages, that encourages typing skills. You can also use a collaborative writing tool (such as EtherPad, Google documents, or collaborative editors running on your local network).
You can set a topic to start things off, which can be simple:
- "Say hello to your friends."
- "Say what you had for breakfast."
and let people start typing!
