Learn to keyboard with educator, Marie Arrington: SCHOOL READINESS


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 4th benefit of becoming efficient at typing is SCHOOL READINESS

  • Schools nowadays provide students with laptops, iPads, Chromebooks, etc. beginning as early as kindergarten. By the time they get into middle school, they will likely have their own laptop that they have to use for notetaking, test-taking, and report writing.
  • Therefore, the earlier we can introduce and familiarize students to typing, the more ready, comfortable, and confident they will be when they have to begin using computers in school!
