Why learn typing?
Typing is an essential skill for anyone who want to learn programming. It affects how comfortable and the speed student writes code and eventually affects his productive.
Here is what we observed from our students:
1. The more time a student spends fussing with the keyboard and correcting errors, the less time he will spend keeping up with code and ideas;
2. The more he worries about the keyboard, the less room he will have for ideas while coding.
3. Making critical typos not only slows down speed wise, but it also breaks flow.
Typing is a skill that is relatively easy to learn. For our young students, we suggest to start a correct typing habit as early as they can. Certain typing speed and accuracy will give students much confidence.
An effective way to practice typing
Though internet has tons of typing practice, games, testing etc. Triway uses these worksheets. All letters, words and sentences in these worksheets are carefully chosen – They are short, simple and effective.
We recommend our students watching Youtube Typing Tutorial before using these worksheets. Once students start typing practice, ask them to focus without any distraction. Normally they should be able to finish each worksheet in 3 to 5 minutes. Then they are required to do same worksheet as homework. Repeating makes typing skills getting better.
