NEW Learning to Type More Efficiently---While typing was once considered the domain of secretaries and office assistants, today the mass use of computers means that just about everyone needs to be an efficient typist. Many schools are teaching children this skill at a young age, in the knowledge that they will continue to use it throughout their education and working careers. Apart from simply being able to type, it is also important to be able to type quickly and accurately to be more efficient. On a similar note, touch typing involves becoming so familiar with the QWERTY-style keyboard that the person is able to type without looking at the keys. This saves far more time and effort when compared to those who type with only two fingers or constantly scan the keys for the right letter. Typing speed is measured inwords per minute, or WPM. Many job postings today specifically ask applicants to pass a typing test or disclose their typing speed. Average typists reach around forty words per minute, while more efficient typists rank around eighty wpm. Professional typists can even go as high as one hundred and twenty wpm. As you begin practicing typing skills, aim to reach around sixty wpm and then try typing faster if possible. There are many online typing tests and tutorials that help typists to improve their skills. Typing tests typically time a typist as they type a short piece of text, and then calculate their speed and accuracy. Other tests allow users to practice alongside other online users in a type of playful competition, as an incentive to motivate people to beat their current speeds. Have a look at some of the resources below to begin improving your typing skills. This site was suggested to us by Julie K., New York, from Mrs. Crawford's after school class! Thank you!
Laptop Language: Nowadays, many people use the computer to do their work. One of the main challenges of using the computer is to master the keyboard. It’s normal for beginners to use a finger to type the letters but it can be quite time-consuming to look for a specific letter each time you want to use it. Since the letters on a keyboard are not arranged in alphabetical order, the main thing is to know where all the letters are located. Then, there are also the matters of using Caps and tabs. Have you ever wondered how professional typists can type so fast and accurately? Well, they go to classes to learn the finer aspects of keyboarding and typing. Fortunately, there are various keyboarding or typing tutorials on the Internet. Here’s a resource page with a lot of keyboarding and typing tutorials. Once you go through some or all of these free resources, you will be surprised to find how much your keyboarding skills have improved. This site was suggested to us by students from Bright Futures Charter School in California! Thank you!
