Keyboarding Skills - Having Fun Learning

Keyboarding skills are becoming an integral part of what is expected from our students. They are in a world where these skills are going to be essential to be successful. Students at Mary Lin (and all of APS) are assessed several times throughout the year using computers. The state doesn't currently address keyboarding throughout the curriculum, however you can help prepare your child by incorporating keyboarding practice at home. A couple of great sites are listed below:


Dance Mat Typing

Typing Web

Students will also benefit from practice using a mouse. Many of the children are used to touch-screen technology and technology in most schools has not quite caught up to that.
