Online Typing Resources, Tutorials and Games

typing informationIt’s extremely important to know how to type correctly.  In the days of a technological world where fingers or two thumbs take the place of the traditional keyboard, you’re seeing the traditional typing techniques falling away in today’s youth. The reality of the situation is that in the ‘real world’, understanding how to type is something that is still very important. Below is a collection of typing resources that can help to increase the productivity and efficiency of your typing.

Virtually every business today uses some form of a computer with a traditional keyboard- so the students that just need an iPad for their college classes are setting themselves up for a harsh reality come graduation time.

The good news is that learning to type is actually a lot simpler than it seems.

Before You Start Typing…

First, you need to understand how to position your fingers correctly on the keyboard, and which keys correspond to each finger.

Here’s a trick to the trade: the ‘F’ and ‘J’ keys have small ridges on the bottom of the key(s), which is the traditional starting position for typing.  Once you understand that, learning to type is a bit like learning how to play the piano- it takes plenty of practice.

We recommend starting with a tutorial, then you should try out some of the games and practice drills. They are a great way to improve your speed and accuracy, even though you’re playing a game.

Regular practice will lead to better typing skills, and eventually, you will be able to type quite fast without looking at the keys.
