Chalk Talk: The Importance of Learning to Type
Typing is a valuable skill to have and being able to touch type (type without looking at the letters on the keyboard) is an added benefit. Being able to type well can make homework and getting a job easier. But how have touch-screens and texting hindered students in the 21st century regarding typing skills? Not enough research has been conducted regarding texting and its effects on typing; however, the average teenager writes about 700 text messages per week (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics). With all that texting going on, typing skills are surely taking a back seat. But typing is important and will benefit students in many ways. For example, learning to type properly can help save a person’s eyes and back. Many typing games teach children correct posture, and good posture leads to good health. Typing well also means typing with speed. The faster a person can type, the less time he or she has to work on homework. Not only does this alleviate stress, but it may also help to boost confidence.
