eReflect, the globally-acclaimed software developer and parent company of Ultimate Typing™, revealed today that if parents wish to offer their children a head start in today's technologically-driven world, then they should consider teaching them how to touch type.
As technological devices become more entrenched in people’s professional and personal lives, it comes as no surprise that skills such as touch typing are most helpful if they are mastered early on by children as soon as they are ready to use those devices. People who’ve mastered touch typing early in their lives are the ones more likely to handle computer-based tasks more efficiently, thanks to their advanced typing speed and accuracy.
eReflect explains that despite the fact that many children are getting early exposure to physical keyboards and touch-screen keyboard interfaces, unless they are offered explicit, formal touch typing lessons, children won’t be able to improve their typing speed and accuracy. That’s why it is crucial to offer them touch typing lessons in the form of typing games and activities to ensure children feel intrigued by the skill and want to improve on it through games as well as through practice.
Children love games, and this informal, entertaining context for learning will get them to love touch typing. Games will make children want to improve their skill through more rigorous activities, either through a typing tutor software or by taking a keyboarding class.
Parents that wish their children to learn keyboarding should act early on. Touch typing practice doesn’t have to be time-consuming or too strict; 20 minutes of practice a day will suffice in giving children ample stimuli and guidelines as to how to improve their typing performance. eReflect reminds parents to reward children for their hard work as a way to further spark their motivation to keep on trying until they master touch typing.
eReflect hopes parents who are concerned about their children’s future will introduce them to solid typing practice. In this manner the younger generation, those who will become the future workforce, will have complete mastery of touch-typing and as such be able to advance their careers.
