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 state wide.  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.

The project began based on inquiries from districts and schools throughout the state during the first quarter of 2013.  During the pilot, VirtualSC worked with districts to implement the project, collect data, evaluate the results, and make recommendations.
