Touch typing, or keyboarding as it’s known today, is an essential computer skill. The student experience is designed to be clean, straight forward, engaging and fun. Students are provided with continuous feedback on their progress every step of the way and are motivated to repeat each lesson over and over to master each step prior to proceeding. Students can begin as early as Kindergarten. and is a great benefit children in terms of cognitive development.
For our youngest students, the goal is to help familiarize young students with where keys are on a keyboard and how typing works, not to push touch typing at this age. Once students reach second or third grade, then it makes sense to start them in on touch typing instruction and help students learn the foundation skills of hand placement, posture, and letter sequence to help them avoid falling into the trap of hunt and peck typing. By 5th grade, they should be able to type at 25 WPM.
