2) Do you prefer long or short posts?

3) Do you share these blog posts on other social networks?

4) What could I do to improve the usability of this blog?

5) How did you first find this blog?

Feel free to answer any of these questions in the comment field. I hope this helps me to serve you better.

    I’m not sure exactly how I found your blog. But my son came home from school last year all excited about READ, WRITE & TYPE and wanted to use it at home too. So I probably found your blog from the Talking Fingers website.
    For blogs in general I prefer shorter posts–time is always a premium.
    I tend to tune in every once in a while to see what is going on.
    The thing I’m probably most interested in is how education and software intersect.

    Hi Heather,

    As a volunteer computer lab teacher I have taught RWT to about 600 kids in K, 1st, 2nd, 3rd. 4th grades and to after school classes of low readers. I gave RWT to my granddaughter Jaclyn when she was 6 and just finishing K. It is amazing how much and how fast RWT wired her brain in a new and much more efficient way. When in 5th grade Jaclyn was reading at 12th grade level.

    I have studied the efficiency of kids using software in 1st and 2nd grades. Many schools are using software that is largely fun and games without real learning value tied into the curriculum in the classroom. Not so with RWT. It actually teaches 9 basic thinking skills simultaneous, namely. HOW TO: listen, remember, concentrate, touch type, write, read, spell, punctuate, and computer basics. And all this to a first grade brain!

    My studies show that after a child in first grade has wired their brain with the 40 new RWT sound to keystroke (letter) brain circuits, they learn from 3 to 8 times as much in class.

    Steve Allen in his book “DUMBTH, The Lost Art of Thinking” said we teach our kids WHAT to think, not HOW to think. He is so right.

    Have you studies how education and software intersect? If so what are your most important findings?

    Sincerely, Fred
