It’s 2019 and the students sitting in your classroom are digital natives. So, if your students are already familiar with technology, how do you incorporate digital instruction that engages them for handwriting and keyboarding lessons? With the right digital instruction tools, you can bring handwriting and keyboarding lessons to life for your students to teach them the valuable skills they need for overall success in reimagined ways.

Kick Start Keyboarding Success

Nearly 98 percent of children ages 8 and under live in a home with a mobile device and a television, and 42 percent of kids now have their own tablet devices (Rideout, 2017). Kids age five to eight spend an average of nearly three hours per day using screen media, with one hour of that time on mobile devices (Rideout, 2017). With most children being acquainted with a mobile device or tablet, you might think that explicitly teaching keyboarding, digital citizenship skills, and internet safety is a thing of the past. But, in today’s classroom, it’s more important than ever. Just because students are already using technology, doesn’t mean you should forgo teaching keyboarding technique. Check out the latest research to see how developmentally appropriate, cross-curricular keyboarding lessons help students build a foundation for keyboarding success!
