I am finding that keyboarding is a necessary skill for students from Grade 2 and up... When students are composing online, I have noticed that they will try to correct each and every keyboarding error; this seems to slow them down considerably.
It appears that finishing the passage and then correcting typos will help to increase speed. In addition, the software identifies spelling errors and typos and pop up menu magically appear with possible correct responses. What could be easier!?! Accurate voice recognition maybe?
