This further places FrogPad™ as a new standard for data entry!

FrogPad™, an innovator in data entry technologies for mobile computing, has been capturing the hearts, minds and digits of the growing corporate technology market with the introduction of 4 new and original one-handed keyboards since 2003.

Now FrogPad™ is launching the first specialized online tutorial created by DeMarque, the renowned creator of E-Learning typing tutorials for corporate settings and for grades K-12 in the US and Canada.

The FrogPad™ keyboard is easier to use than a standard keyboard because it is one-handed as most our activities are, and it has been designed around the 15 most frequently used letters by all languages using the Roman alphabet. The DeMarque typing tutorial for the FrogPad™ keyboard features “Friendly Froggie” to train users to type very efficiently with one hand. The On-line tutorial is available in English, and will soon be in French, German and Spanish.

Additionally, an enabling technology of the keyboard is an 8-bit microcontroller from Freescale Semiconductor which provides a cost-effective solution for maximizing the keyboard's battery life.

FrogPad™ for Educators

By enabling typing with one hand, FrogPad™ is revolutionizing the use of technology in the education system. The size and portability of the keyboard make it ideal for classroom use. Computer technology has become a very important tool in the educational system for both teachers and students. In elementary schools, the curriculum focuses on ensuring that students are computer literate. Schools devote an entire semester to teaching students how to type. Because of the intuitive patented letter layout, teaching all students to type on FrogPad™ will insure faster learning in less time than a semester. An average person can learn to type 40 WPM on the FrogPad™ with less than ten hours of practice, when sixty hours are required for a regular keyboard. The professional tutorial developed and now offered by DeMarque is fun and easy to use. It provides great instruction and training for new users. And young children will leap to using it immediately. It gives every student a real chance to experience the joys of technology.

Disabilities in the Classroom
FrogPad™ is a great tool for students with disabilities. In an education system where inclusion and mainstreaming have become very popular practices, FrogPad™ further enables students with disabilities to function normally in a regular classroom. Its design allows students to type quickly using only one hand, and its size makes it easily portable as well as hardly noticeable to others. Students also love the fun nature of the keyboard with its bright color and cute logo. Most students have referred it to as “cool”. Think of the impact this keyboard makes for children with Dysgraphia and Cerebral Palsy. Visit the disability link for more information.

Today there are four form factors of the patented FrogPad™ data entry interface: the FrogPad™ standard keyboard, the slimmer mini FrogPad™, the Bluetooth-enabled iFrog, and the most recent addition to the Frog family, the Bluetooth headset, FrogTalk.

Founder and FrogPad President Linda Marroquin likens the introduction of the FrogPad™ to the market changing launches of the Laptop or the PDA, “The standard QWERTY keyboard in use today was designed for a different time when mobile computing devices were only a glimmer in the eyes of their developers; and the continual evolution and miniaturization of mobile technology devices are driving the need for a new kind of data entry device. We believe the patented FrogPad product platform is the solution”.

Current applications for the future wearable Frog include industries with needs for easy data entry from a field application such as shipping logistics, healthcare patient care, and remote field operations such as on-site drilling for the Oil & Gas industry. FrogPad (frogpad.com) is an innovator in one-handed data entry methods for mobile computing devices.
