As the President of Keyboard Classroom for the past 6 years, my passion has been to teach students how to type successfully so they can have a skill that they will take with them from their school years into their career years.
My three main reasons for teaching students to type are:
If you wouldn’t give a child a book without teaching them ‘how’ to read then WHY would you put a computer in front of a student without teaching them ‘how’ to type?
Typists are better writers because touch-typing frees the mind from mechanics, allowing students to focus on ideas.
Typing is a skill they’ll use every day!
