Middle School students, it’s time to sharpen your keyboarding skills!

Now that you are using Chromebooks with full keyboards, it’s time to review your touch typing. Remember Grade 4 in the Computer Lab?

During the school year we work on touch typing (also called keyboarding) in Grades 4 because I think it is so very important to your academic career and a skill you will have all your life.

  • Saves time
  • Increases productivity
  • Allows ideas to flow more freely when you don’t have to hunt for the letters on the keyboard
  • Increases accuracy, workflow, and concentration.

Even though touch screen technology and on-screen keyboards are becoming more common, you still need to know how to type using a standard keyboard. You will not be typing term papers in high school on your phone! Please keep practicing touch-typing during the summer using
