Touch Typing a Dying Art

Way back when, before desktop computing, smart phones, tablets and dare I say it the world wide web were ingrained into our lives, Touch Typing was massively important for commerce, government and businesses far and wide.

RSA and Pitman Typing exams were readily available at schools, along with manual typewriters, white out fluid, ink ribbons and the familiar "ding" when the typists reached the end of each line.

The production of all documents relied on nimble fingered, super touch typists who were able to produce immaculate documents at speeds of around 90 wpm and circa 95% accuracy rates.

Wind forward a few years and IT has boomed; children, adults and pensioners alike are IT savvy, using keyboards and electronic devices across almost every walk of life.

Whilst we can all use keyboards, 2 finger typing has become the norm... this my friends is not Touch Typing. The amazing typists from yesteryear would be horrified with the lack of skill, speed and accuracy of majority of today's typists.

Touch Typing benefits are not purely related to speed and accuracy. Once fully mastered it completely frees up #WorkingMemory, a godsend for those with #Dyslexia, eliminates poor handwriting constraints, improves speed, spelling and ability to actually read back notes. All of which are immensely challenging and restrictive for those suffering with Dyslexia, Dyspraxia and alike.

Juunipa Tutors is a fan of Touch Typing.... perhaps not the coolest statement but love it, we certainly do!

We love that our bespoke children's Touch Typing Courses make a difference.

We love that we help improve children's lives.

We love that suddenly children can start making sense of their notes and can actually keep up with note taking.

Bold statements but so very true. Touch Typing rocks.

Time to get with the Touch Typing movement... ding ding!
