"Teachers are realizing the importance of keyboarding as a basic skill as indicated by the rate of increase in the number of school districts implementing keyboarding instruction at the elementary level. However, this increase is still deficient if indeed the mandate is for all students to be computer literate. School districts should include keyboarding instruction in the elementary curriculum that includes the development of efficient inputting skills to use technological tools more effectively."
"The National Commission of Excellence in Education included computer literacy as a basic knowledge for all students. Since this recommendation was made, what has happened in subsequent years? As states and school districts mandate computer literacy, are they providing reinforcement of keyboarding that leads to the development of usable skills?"
