Typing Master Class: Learn How to Type Fast without Looking!
What you'll learn
- Home Row/Home Keys
- How to type letters.
- How to type numbers.
- How to type punctuation.
- How to use shift keys instead of caps lock.
- How to use backspace, space bar and enter.
- How to create capitals.
- Use a typing site to practice all typing skills learned.
- How to not look down down at the keyboard while typing.
- How to stop the "hen pecking" method of keyboarding from slowing us down and moving on to the proper form of typing.
- Proper posture and hand positioning while taking care of our wrists.
- No prerequisites or requirements other than a keyboard, internet access and a computer.
For our first lesson, we will discuss how to properly hold our hands on the keyboard, what the home keys are and we will have a quick pre-assessment to see where we are in our typing skills before we fully dive into the typing lessons. We are only doing this to see where we are now to then see how far we have come by the 6th day by taking the same assessment.
Following our pre-assessment, you will be given time to practice your typing skills by using online typing practice lessons set up just for you.
After class, you may login and practice you typing skills on your own. Practice lessons are already created for you to complete independently. There will be an attachment to tell you how to login once I have your information following your sign up for this class.
Every class will be a time for us to learn a new technique and to practice our typing online. Keyboarding games provided online are also used to help us practice our skills.
Following each lecture you will be asked to complete different assignments with the website provided. This extra practice outside of class will give you the chance to improve you typing skills to prepare for your final day post assessment.
This is going to be a fun and extremely helpful class that will make your future easier.
I cannot wait to see you there!
Who this course is for:
- This course is for anyone who wants to learn how to type efficiently with confidence.
I am Lauren Cannon, a former brick and mortar teacher turned online educator and curriculum creator. I currently teach online for Outschool and VIPKID which means I teach students around the world ages 3-18 English language skills, keyboarding, phonics, reading and map skills. I am adding more classes so stay tuned. I have been teaching adults keyboarding and English as a second language on my own for a while now. I'm expanding this on the side and I love where it is taking me.
I also tutor students ages 2-80+ in English as a Second Language courses I have created. All of my lessons have some sort of element of fun and interactivity because I strongly believe in this being a motivating factor. Plus, I have more fun the more fun my students have! My teaching style is high energy with scaffolding and patience built in. I strongly believe in differentiation and meeting a learner where he/she is in their learning.
I look forward to having class with you. Thank you for choosing me to be your teacher =).
