Keyboarding - A must needed Life Skill!
Typing is a basic requirement for scholastic and professional excellence
Touch typing, or keyboarding as it’s known today, is an essential computer skill. Everyone has their own way of typing; some use the hunt and peck method, others develop a unique way of touch typing that’s efficient but not always as accurate as they want to.
Learning to touch type means becoming an efficient typist who can easily perform online research, type assessments, and take online exams. A touch typist succeeds because their typing skills not only aren’t a problem, they actually facilitate the whole process!
When a student learns to touch type like a pro they become more confident and more likely to perform well academically. Touch typing saves time during homework sessions, and allows students to focus more diligently on learning new things, rather than struggling with their keyboards.
Use this time of Self-Quarantine to allow your child to learn keyboarding to grow into an efficient typist. Below are a list of FREE fun typing games for kids of all ages.
