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 started the students with the program yesterday. I love it! My students who have been achieving great speeds with their pecking are hating life right now. And surprisingly, students who were not motivated in the past seem to like it. A couple of my boys who never took it really seriously seem to like the challenge of it. Even when it was the last ten minutes of class, when I allow them to go onto typing games or vocab, these two boys chose to stick with the Keyboarding Online. I hope the novelty doesn't wear off!
