Employers, educators, and parents agree that effective computer use is a requisite outcome for all students. In order to accomplish this required level of computer competence, a productive computer keyboarding skill is essential. The Illinois Business Education Association in collaboration with the State Board of Education, developed a sequential plan for developing keyboarding skills in grades K-12.
These research-based guidelines are recommended for implementation
in new or existing technology or computer keyboarding curriculum.
A tremendous amount of concern regarding the inability of
individuals to utilize computers efficiently and effectively
has surfaced from parents, educators, and employers.
The brochure located using the following link provides a definition of keyboarding, objectives for various grade levels, researched-based guidelines for keyboarding instruction, notable quotes, and contact information.
It is essential that these recommendations be shared at all levels - elementary, middle/junior high, and high school.
The brochure can be downloaded, printed and disseminated.
