Keyboarding


Found in: keyboarding

As I observe the techniques my keyboarding students have, there are three things that are 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 come with training, but correcting years of incorrect practice takes a longer time and is frustrating to students. So, as you observe students using computers, mention the correct fingering and guide them early in the use of correct techniques.
