A 'Hand-Function' approach to teaching keyboarding

This is a developmental approach to helping children with keyboarding. Children's hand function develops with finger and fine motor control of the radial (thumb) side of the hand first. The radial fingers are always the most controlled. Ulnar (little finger side) fingers are generally less skilled. This mini webinar introduces strategies to help develop automaticity and efficiency of typing based on children's hand function and development.
