Should We Teach Keyboarding, or Just Digital Literacy?
This post rasied the question "Do we need to teach keyboarding?", specifically the QWERTY keyboard.
Today students have access to digital devices that do not necessarily have keyboards attached. The author explores these issues and shares how his school is dealing with this issue. He also includes a video, 'Digital Natives', that provides a look at how students use technology today.
This may be a question that is being asked at your school, and with the Common Core requiring that students be able to sit and type a document (beginning in Grade 4 with a single page in one sitting and moving to 3 pages in one sitting by Grade 6) it is a question that we may need to explore.
