Why should students learn keyboarding?
Students need to know proper keyboarding technique so they can keyboard with proficient speed and accuracy and maximize their time on the computer. In fourth grade, we transition the students from writing their thoughts down on paper to typing them on a computer. Please encourage your children to practice keyboarding at least once a week to prepare them for the Florida Writing Assessment in the spring. The students will need to write their essays on the computer and be proficient in typing.
