WEBINAR: A Hand-Function Approach to Teaching Typing
All times are USA CDT / UTC -5 If you are not able to make the live webinar, you will still have access to the webinar, digital materials, and course content once you have signed up.
Effective Typing Skills
A different approach to teaching the kinesthetic, motor-planning, and fine motor coordination skills needed for effective and efficient typing.
Children's hand function develops very specifically based on anatomy and function of the hand. In this webinar, we will focus on hand function development and the differences in radial and ulnar hand function skills. If we consider how children develop the fine motor skills of their hands, and relate that to keyboarding, we can help children build more effective and efficient keyboarding skills. Learn about an approach and you will also have access to digital program materials to use with children within a hand-function approach to teaching typing skills.
