Keyboarding


As I observe the techniques my keyboarding students have, there are three things that are very difficult for them to change when they finally take a formal keyboarding class: 1) using the little finger of the right hand for backspace; 2) using the little finger of the right hand for the enter key; and, 3) using the right thumb for the space bar. Building speed and accuracy are things that will come with training, but changing years of incorrect practice take a longer time and is very frustrating to the students. So, as you observe students using computers, mention the correct fingering and please help guide them early in the use of correct techniques.
