The Importance of Keyboarding Skills in Students
With the rapid advancement of technology, keyboarding has become one of the most important skills in our modern world. Many state assessments now require students—starting as early as third grade—to write online. Yet, many students at this age and older are not yet able to type with the proper technique, or without looking down at the keyboard. In testing, the faster a student can type, the more time they can devote to improving the quality of their response and answering the rest of the exam’s questions.
Typing is a foundational skill that is critical competency for success in school and in the current workplace. And, like all other skills, it improves through practice. No longer limited to the realm of a typewriter, today’s keyboarding impacts multiple areas of use. From writing papers, to entering code to sending online communications, the need to successfully and efficiently use technological tools requires the prerequisite of mastery in keyboarding.
