Typing 101 - Home Row - Keyboarding - Learn How to Type

Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(111)
In this class, students will learn the home row keys on the computer keyboard to help improve typing skills. They will learn proper posture, finger placement, and how to memorize the keys. Time to type! (I use the US QWERTY keyboard.)

Class Experience

Students will learn which fingers are used for which keys in the home row.
Students will learn the reason for resting hands on the home row.
Students will learn how to create a mnemonic device to help them remember the order of the letters.
I have enjoyed teaching a summer typing camp to kids and teaching typing/technology classes to students for over ten years.
*If students run out of time to create their own sentence to remember the home row, they can create their own outside of class time. During the Typing 102 course (top row), I may ask for volunteers to share the sentences they created from Typing 101 (home row).
*Additionally, they can choose to play the practice game after class which will be supplied on the listing for Typing 101.
Suggestions to have nearby during class for interaction: 3-5 pieces of paper with marker(s) (to write large letters) and/or a personal whiteboard and dry erase marker.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Keyboard Ninja, on Typing.com, is a game students can use to specifically practice typing the home row keys after this course is completed. 
Disclaimer - There is a slicing/sword sound when the fruit pieces are eliminated but no visible object eliminating the fruit when the correct letter is typed. If they type the letter attached to the bomb, the game ends. The ice cube slows the game, and the cherry wins points for all items on the screen.
This game can be played as a guest.
