For students to have a solid understanding of the computer keyboard QWERTY Layout (English- United States). This includes having memorized where many of the keys are, the ability to type without looking at the keyboard, the ability to use a computer mouse for basic functions, and the ability to use recognize keyboard shortcuts.
Most students will leave this course with the ability to type short paragraphs either from hearing words, reading words, or thinking of a story.

Day 1 preparation:
Before class, Please adjust your computer settings so that your child can screen share in class. For students age 7 to 8, please have an adult available if needed for any tech issues. It can be disruptive to the learning environment when we experience delays related to a learner's inability to get assistance on the first day. Generally after day 1, the students are fine navigating the online platform on their own.

Typing is a skill that is developed by repeated practice. Four out of six classes are primarily students typing and getting to the know the keyboard. It can feel boring and while typing games can make things more fun, the games do not replace memorizing the keys. Students who do the homework generally see the greatest benefit from this class.
