I do not believe they are doing this task this year. I completely agree with your assessment of the need for this skill. it would be beneficial to allot time for typing on the iPad. There are typing apps that would be a great starting point for students. This would also aid in the transition from iPad to mac book. I do not know when one could do this though. Time for instruction is difficult to find without the addition of another task that one is asked to teach. The computer lab would be a great atmosphere for this task.

    Adele: Do the 6th graders still have the opportunity to take the actual keyboarding class at CMS? We truly need and enjoy our iPads, but students do not receive successful typing instruction unless... more

        That's too bad that they are not teaching keyboarding in the middle school this year. It's definitely needed since all students work with typing and technology each day.

          I have heard they have a class in 7th grade for keyboarding and other technology skills. Seems like we should have that much earlier.
