Follow us throughout October as Marie Arrington MAT, educational specialist shares the benefits of keyboarding. 

She is certified in Keyboarding Without Tears (KWT) from Learning Without Tears‚Ñ¢.  Keyboarding Without Tears (KWT) from Learning Without Tears¬Æ is a web-based curriculum for grades K‚Äì5 that teaches typing, general computer readiness, digital citizenship and online test prep.  Promoted as a first step of digital learning, KWT teaches children the skills they will need to type fluently, learn computer functions, format text and discover how to interact in many online environments. 

The 2nd benefit of becoming efficient at typing is ACCURACY

  • For a student who struggles with spelling, punctuation, capitalization, etc., keyboarding is so helpful because it catches your mistakes for you. If a word is misspelled, it underlines it. If a sentence is incomplete, it underlines that.
  • In addition, it also autocorrects a lot of simple mistakes that can be made (i.e., forgetting to capitalize the beginning of a sentence or a day of the week). So, go ahead and use that Spell Check because it is such a helpful resource that you just don‚Äôt have when writing with pencil and paper!
