Keyboarding has become an essential skill in our computer literate society. The ability to be proficient in using a keyboard has never been more important. Communicating via e-mail, live chats and forums have become one of the most efficient methods of sharing ideas and collaborating.
For students that touch type, more time can be spent on the writing process instead of the mechanics of typing. They will be able to complete assignments more quickly, research, input and communicate effectively and more! With observations and guidance provided by a teacher, students will also learn proper posture and hand position, which will reduce possible painful injuries. Students that can touch type will be more successful in completing and editing assignments, therefore, develop greater self-esteem and confidence.
Bad habits are hard to break and if you currently "hunt and peck", learning to touch type may slow you down a little at the beginning; however, in a short period you will be typing 40 – 50 wpm or more. At best a "hunt and peck" typist will only be able to reach speeds of 25 wpm.
