Typing/Keyboarding Class


Learn how to type on a computer keyboard using the touch system. Teaching kids to "touch" type is a great skill to have early on and will save a tremendous amount of time later. One of the most important reasons to get kids typing is it helps get to the thinking faster. In academic terms this is called "cognitive automaticity". With typing we are freed from the slowness of handwriting, finally allowing us to get our ideas down at the speed of thought. Come learn the correct keyboarding techniques and race your friends to see who finishes first. Typing can be fun! In today's Technology world, keyboarding and typing has become a necessary skill. Get a jump start on your future, sign up today!
