Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

As technology use continues to advance in educational settings as well as daily life, effective use of computers, including keyboarding skills, is becoming increasingly more critical. This session will review two different keyboarding instructional approaches for the elementary-school setting. Outcomes including keyboarding speed, accuracy, and technique will be reported for approximately 1,900 total students included in this study. Relevance to OT services will be discussed.
