Leaning proper keyboarding techniques at a young age is incredibly important today with everything being done on computers. That’s why I’ve created this page — just for YOU! Kids can reinforce what they learn in the computer lab. For you parents who never learned proper keyboarding techniques, now is the time to take advantage of the many free keyboarding sites on the internet. Sit up straight, feet flat on the floor, fingers slightly curved, don’t look at your hands…..and begin typing!
