Now that early elementary school students have learned the letters on the keyboard and correct finger use, what next?
We can hear you say:
o Why teach early elementary school students correct finger use when they have limited access to computers in class and at home to practice this newly-learned skill
o We have been told the fingers of Early Elementary School children are not developmentally ready for keyboarding
At this age, students don't need to continually practice as speed is not important, but they do need to type correctly when they do have access to computers in class and at home. This prevents them getting into the bad habit of typing with two fingers
o As this is a memory-association method, there are many fun ways for teachers and parents to reinforce correct finger use when students don't have access to computers . . More
o When students do have access to computers, integration of this newly-learned skill with class curriculum work and computer use at home is easy . . More
The question of whether or not Early Elementary School children are developmentally ready for keyboarding has been widely debated since the early 1990s and, years later, it is still being debated
We believe (and experts on the subject agree) that there's no problem with starting kids keyboarding early. It's time to stop talking, teach keyboarding in a fun way, verbally reinforce this newly-learned skill at every opportunity and give the student short bursts on computers
