Manage Typing Lessons When Each Student Learns at a Different Pace

It’s an inevitable fact of teaching that students will complete the work you assign them at different paces. Without fail, one student will finish before another student is even halfway through.

Every teacher learns pretty quickly that it’s imperative to have a game plan for what students will do when they finish their work early. It makes sense then, that one of the greatest advantages of an online program like Typing.com, is that students can work at their own pace.

Many of our teachers find that it’s useful to manage student progress by assigning specific lessons to their classes each week (learn how to assign lessons here). Assigning lessons is a good way to keep students working on the specific content you’ve chosen, and to help you keep tabs on how a given class is doing across certain skills.

So what do you do if some students breeze through the day’s lessons while others are slowly chugging along?

Build Foundational Skills

Building Foundational Technology Skills for Lifelong Success

One question we hear from teachers regularly, is “Do my students really need to learn how to type?”. With new technology like speech-to-text, how important is it to learn proper keyboarding skills?

Very important. 

Typing is a foundational skill. Think of it like learning to tie your shoes. Of course there are slip on shoes and velcro shoes, but at some point, you will probably need to learn how to tie a shoe.

The foundational skill of typing is one that students will use in all aspects of their lives. Many students now take standardized tests online, which must be typed. The student who knows the keyboard will inevitably do better than the one who has to hunt and peck her answers out. Older students will be required to write papers, and knowing how to type will be instrumental in speeding up this process. Eventually, our students will be attempting to build a career – and it will not be easy for them to create their CV with speech-to-text technology.
