Why Teach Your Kids to Type?
A Homeschool Typing Solution for Parents
Type to Learn is a research-based, interactive educational software used by over 15,000 schools, now available for homeschool parents. Traditionally, schools introduce keyboarding lessons around the third grade. Due to the recent widespread shift from classroom learning to home-based learning, Type to Learn has been adapted for home use. Parents can now provide children the highest quality typing program at home. Keyboarding is also a fun, educational activity for summer break and can be an edifying alternative to video games or television.
Keyboarding has become an essential ability for success in the digital age. Children will rely on their typing skills throughout their schooling and careers. Typing has become the new penmanship. It is important to provide a guide for children in their development of this crucial skill. Kids today encounter typing at a very young age. Without guidance, they can quickly acquire bad habits that need to be unlearned and may even cause significant delays in typing development.
The Benefits of Learning to Type
Not only do typing lessons provide kids with quick acclamation to computers and typing efficiency, it has been shown to increase self efficacy, reading comprehension, writing quality, and visual-motor abilities. Efficient keyboarding skills have also been shown to improve scores on standardized tests. Alleviating a student's struggle with key placement allows them to instead focus on concept development and material recall. This is one of the best ways to empower a student in preparation for standardized tests.
