Timonium's Terrific Typers
In this globally connected world, all students must be technologically literate. They must have the ability to use technology as they access information and use their knowledge to think critically, solve problems, and share ideas with others. It is important for students to acquire keyboarding skills to better communicate and collaborate with others.
County progresses with the S.T.A.T. initiative, every student will have a
digital device in their hands for personalized learning by the end of the
2016-2017 school year. One of the Common Core English Language Arts Standards
for Writing states, “With guidance and support from adults, use technology to
produce and publish writing (using keyboarding skills) as well as to interact
and collaborate with others.” (W.3.6)
Here at Timonium, we think it is
beneficial to introduce the basic concepts of keyboarding. Here are a few fun
free typing games which will help build a foundation for typing skills.
