This is a great idea and something that I would love to try. We currently do focus on typing at our school but over a long period of time which as you mentioned isn't very effective. We use a website from the BBC called Dance Mat. The kids love it! It's great if your school doesn't have any typing software and the kids can use it at home as long as they have internet. You can access it through the link below.
