Keyboarding Guidance Released

 

  • As mentioned in the recently-released Technology Literacy Memo, Guidance on Keyboarding Instruction is now posted on the Office of Educational Design and Technology’s website. 
  • Keyboarding is an important skill that allows students to write with fluency.  As schools prepare for the transition to the NYS Next Generation English Language Arts Learning Standards, and continue the transition to computer-based testing for 3-8 English Language Arts and Mathematics, it is important that they begin planning for keyboarding instruction.
  • A list of  commonly-used keyboarding instruction programs in New York is also available on the Office of Educational Design and Technology’s website.  The list was generated from responses to NYSED’s survey on keyboarding instruction, released in early fall 2017.
  • Questions may be directed to the Office of Educational Design and Technology at (518) 474-5461, or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
