As classrooms have gone virtual in the current situation, it is imperative for young kids to perfect keyboarding skills to learn and communicate efficiently.
It may seem a rather grown-up skill but in today’s scenario, it is a must like even-handed handwriting in a pen and paper learning setup.
Touch typing makes a child faster as it takes less time to do tasks/assignments. Automatizing the process improves the quality of writing as it frees up cognitive energy so a child can focus on the ideas instead of struggling to find the right key to articulate thoughts.
It is suggested to spend 20-30 minutes each day and practice touch typing. It is a skill to learn and requires patience and diligence.
