It’s that time of year – 6th graders created typing accounts to begin regular practice. Students are expected to start with 2 days of practice a week, for 5 minutes per session. The goal is regular, incremental improvement through repetition. A couple tips for improvement:
- speed comes with good form – focus on sitting comfortably with fingers on the home row.
- keep eyes on the screen – your hands know where they are because of the tabs on the “f” and “j” keys and the space bar.
This typing practice can happen in the lab or at home. Time will be provided for all of this work to completed during writing/tech lab or tech class, but it is up to students to use that time effectively.
Once we’d all run through a couple of lessons, the 6th grade helped an 8th grade class with their “digital identity” survey. Results of this community-wide (students, parents and teachers) survey will be posted once data gathering and analysis is complete.
