Kids computer

Hi Val and Stefan,
    I would like to know if deaf pupils prefer using keyboard commands or mouse commands when using sign writing on their computer.  Do you have a program for kids (not adults) about how to use whether a keyboard or a mouse for sign writing?  Otherwise, I assume that deaf kids (like adults) connect to an online Internet (SignBank, SignPuddle.), or they buy a PocketPuddle.  Or else, do you have any suggestions for deaf kids, or about a program for kids regarding the use of computers?  I'm not suggesting that material should include ASL literature, books for kids, and so on.  But I mean that material should include computer aided instruction for kids, and a kids computer book regarding sign writing.  I know that SignPuddle comes with video instructions.  But, I do not know if deaf kids using French can also follow to learn steps of the video instructions.
    Stefan Worhnmann, have you been teaching sign writing to your deaf kids for a few years, now?  If so, how do you use sign writing using computers for deaf kids (ages 6-11)?  If they connect to an online Internet, how do you teach computer instructions at kids' level?  Did your German deaf kids watch video instructions prior to learning how to use a mouse on a computer screen? 
    Best regards,
    André Thibeault
