There is an article in our local paper that says:
THERE'S SCIENTIFIC PROOF THAT TOUCH TYPING IS OVERRATED
This actually infuriated me.
Ask anyone who doesn't know how to type if they wish they did know how to type and how long it takes them to type something.
The article says you can develop your own way of typing as long as you keep your hands static, your fingers are moving, and you use the same fingers to type the letters.
Dah!! Isn't that what touch typing is?
As a business teacher this really upset me. Without a doubt, touch typing is much more efficient.
I have gotten so many comments from people saying typing class was the most valuable class they ever took in high school.
If you do know how to type, aren't you glad you know how to type?
If you don't know how to type, don't you wish you did know how to type?
Here is the online article:
********Try either of these sites for learning to type...fun and educational.
They are the same site, but different levels of progression.
It doesn't matter whether you are a child or an adult, you will learn how to type if you work with these sites.
And of course, there is Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing...CD's should be available.
