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 3rd benefit of becoming efficient at typing is LESSEN FATIGUE

  • As I‚Äôve already discussed, typing can significantly cut down the amount of time a student spends on written work.
  • Therefore, that also correlates with their level of fatigue. By decreasing a child‚Äôs level of fatigue when completing assignments, you are also decreasing their level of frustration and even more importantly, increasing their confidence within themselves. Think about how much easier your afternoons could be! 

Contact Marie at 704-372-9652 ext. 216 to develop a customized plan for your student.
