Teaching my daughter to type

My 10 year old daughter loves to write and is a creative and imaginative story teller.  I want her to be able to share her stories with others and luckily we live in a time and age where that is a simple matter. Her typing skills are the main thing that is keeping her from being able to share her stories, so I have decided that I would try to teach her to type. I have found that there are quite a few free websites dedicated to learning to type and they seem to wok well. The only issue that I have found is that most of the sites use Flash for the training, so learning on my Surface RT is out. I guess it is time to either find a good typing program for Windows RT, or maybe this is an opportunity for making an app. Let me know if you have any suggestions for good typing programs for kids.
