The Importance of Keyboarding
As most educators know, many assessments now require students, starting as early as third grade, to write online. Yet, many students in third grade can’t type with proper technique, or without looking down at the keyboard. Six out of 10 educators say keyboarding skill gaps negatively impact student performance on online assessments, and keyboarding instruction and practice is often overlooked.
Join Wayne Lange, Technology Coordinator at Lucile Gregg Elementary School, Houston ISD in Texas, as he shares how he helps his students build the digital literacy skills they need for success by delivering foundational keyboarding instruction.
During the edWebinar, Wayne will share:
- Why keyboarding is a foundational digital literacy skill that all students need
- Criteria for delivering effective keyboarding curriculum and instruction
- Strategies to insure student success with keyboarding
Elementary- and middle school-level teachers, technology coordinators, library media specialists, and school administrators are invited to this this live, interactive event. There will be time to get your questions answered after Wayne’s presentation. Join us to learn why building students’ keyboarding skills is essential.
