This year in technology we are hoping to build student’s ability in practical technological skills that will enhance their college and career readiness.  We will begin the year with a focus on keyboarding.  The specific program that we have selected is web-based and can be accessed from home.  Much like developing a second language, typing skills become more fluent with practice. Therefore, we encourage you to allow your students to practice their keyboarding at home nightly.  The program can be accessed through www.typingweb.com.  Each student will be assigned a username and password to assist in monitoring their progress.  This program will be used weekly during technology class.  At home, students may wish to use this program.  However, there are several others that can be used to assist in developing keyboarding fluency.  Allow your students to explore these sites and practice on a site that is most compatible with their learning style. 

  Keyboarding Websites: 
        §  www.bbc.co.uk/schools/typing  
        §  www.funtotype.com  
        §  www.freetypinggame.net  
        §  www.powertyping.com  

After students gain confidence in keyboarding skills, students will build an understanding of Microsoft Office applications as they develop technological proficiency.
