Keyboarding for Kids
Keyboarding for Kids is designed to teach keyboarding correctly to young children at the time when computers are first introduced to them, through sixth grade. The content is phonetic by grade and reading level to facilitate learning reading along with learning keyboarding. All elementary students will benefit from taking this course whether learned at school or at home. The beginning pages of the textbook explain the course fully and give suggested goals by grade level. This course is self-paced and can be individualized: by grade level, by reading level, to beginning typists, to experienced typists, to slow learners, to fast learners. Course competencies, which can be individualized, are given in Section One in the textbook. It is recommended that teachers or parents read Section One before teaching keyboarding.
Keyboarding for Kids was developed by a veteran typing/keyboarding teacher that is concerned about teaching correct techniques to children. Poor keyboarding techniques are very hard to overcome when they have been practiced for years (looking at keys, hunting and pecking, screen watching, wrong fingering, etc.).
