Elementary Keyboarding

The Elementary Keyboarding resource gives you everything that you need to provide Keyboarding instruction to elementary students.

Through the expressed needs and inquiries by districts and schools across the state, VirtualSC realized the need for a keyboarding program offered statewide. The Elementary Keyboarding Program supports personalized and customized education for every student through an online choice option for keyboarding instruction.
The primary objectives of the Elementary Keyboarding Project are:

  • To provide instruction in alphabetic keyboarding to students in grades K-6.
  • To provide instruction and practice in navigation through online open educational resources and activities.
  • To provide opportunity for students to compose paragraphs, short answers, or essay responses at the keyboard in a timely manner from writing prompts provided in the course.
