Keyboarding Skills


    Keep your fingers at the home keys and do not look down when you are typing!

    Always use the correct finger for each key on the keyboard!

    Don't try to be fast, try for 100% accuracy!

    We will begin each class period with 10 to 15 minutes of typing practice.

    Keyboarding is an important skill for all students. It involves using correct finger placement and building speed for optimal typing accuracy. When students develop keyboarding proficiency, it becomes an aid to the improvement of their writing skills. It is recommended that all students begin to learn correct placement of fingers on the keyboard as soon as they begin to use the computer.

    We use the software called Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing.
