KeyBoarding Skills

Keyboarding

Keyboarding is a crucial skill for using computers as an integrated learning tool. The goal of teaching keyboarding is to help students become more comfortable using the computer to gather information, solve problems, and communicate their knowledge.Students are encouraged to practice keyboarding at home as well as in school.

 

Keyboarding is the penmanship of the computer age, and it is extremely important to encourage and develop good keyboarding habits right from the start. Many of our students already explore computers in their homes and/or classrooms.  As students move up through the grades, some Teachers may require homework or reports typed out on a computer.   Early practice and repetition that focuses on proper keyboarding technique, accuracy and speed will help your student become more comfortable on the computer.

Our newly adopted Common Core program supports the development and benefits of good keyboarding techniques starting at an early age.
