The Los Angeles superintendent recently approached the State Board of Education to ask them to postpone using standardized test scores. Reason given: students lack keyboarding skills. Link to full article inside.
Starting in 2016 in Finland, cursive handwriting will no longer be a "compulsory" part of the education curriculum. The focus instead will be Keyboarding.
I am in my second week of using the Keyboard Short Course online and the students are doing GREAT! I showed the demo CD at least two times per class, used the M&Ms on their hands, and got them started. The 'block timing' area feature helped students focus on the copy and not on their hands. My goal was to get through lesson #2 by the end of the first week, and almost everyone, even the slowest of my 8th graders, is reaching and surpassing that goal. I am elated with both the progress of the students and their attitudes. The program is challenging and fun. Students are competing up and down the lab rows trying to do better than their friends. I let them do it!!! It makes the classroom more exciting and fun while accomplishing the goal of improving students' speed and accuracy. Thanks for all your years of hard work developing this unique program.A. Wicklander,
