Kids and Teens Keyboarding Classes Now Available

Officeskills.org is now offering online keyboarding classes for kids and teens.  We license our keyboarding software from Edutyping,  a revolutionary web-based keyboarding software designed exclusively for the educational market that is currently used in over 3,500 schools and districts across the country!  The software is completely green and requires no installation,  no textbooks or paper.

The kids class is a junior level keyboarding self-paced course that is appropriate for elementary (K3-5) school students and is perfect for summer classes or the home schooler. The curriculum introduces new keys by rows where students first learn the middle row, then the top row, and the bottom row of the keyboard.

The teens keyboarding self-paced course is appropriate for students at the middle school and high school level (grades 6 – 12). The curriculum follows a standard keyboarding instructional format where students are introduced to new keys based on frequency of use in the English language.  Teens will learn the proper techniques and finger strokes for maximum typing speed and accuracy which will help prepare them for college or careers.
