Being efficient at touch typing as an adult can improve your personal and professional growth, while making your financial prospects look better than ever.
Touch typing is an essential skill today. Computers have almost replaced books. Pen and paper have given way to keyboard and screen. So it’s no surprise that the need to have above average-touch typing skills is more urgent than ever.
Start early, reap the benefits longer
While you can learn to touch type at any age, to fully enjoy the benefits of touch typing you need to start early. Learning how to touch type using the right technique is something you can – and should – start right now.
And of course, the faster you become at keyboarding, the more benefits you’ll enjoy.
Raising confident students
A child who learns to touch type will have the confidence and assertiveness to use technology to their advantage, whether that’s for typing an essay, researching a topic, or collaborating with students in their class in a virtual collaboration network.
When students are not intimidated by technology they’re also more receptive to learning more advanced skills like coding and web design. Imagine the advantages your child will have at school with their above-average keyboarding abilities!
Improving productivity and saving time
Many children today have little free time. Between school classes and hobbies and extracurricular activities, they find themselves constantly studying, learning, practicing.
However, with the right touch typing accuracy and speed, children can save hours every month, which they can use to play, relax or socialize with their peers. Keeping a work/play balance is important for kids as well as adults.
Making digital communication efficient
Whether communicating with relatives living far away or collaborating on projects with other students around the world, being good at touch typing means a student can use technology and social communication media to communicate efficiently and without any disruption or added stress.
Touch typing helps adults and students alike
The benefits of more efficient communication, confidence in using new technologies, and increased productivity aren’t just there for younger students.
As a college student, you’ll continue to reap the benefits of touch typing. You’ll be able to touch type essays and reports quickly, and collaborate on interdisciplinary projects with ease. You’ll stand out from the students around you by the efficiency with which you can study, learn, and grow into a smarter person.
Mastering touch typing continues to benefit you after graduation, too!
Do you want increased and better career prospects? Do you want to be more productive at work? Now that you’re a fast and accurate typist, you’re a step ahead of your colleagues, your supervisors are happy with your output, and you’re the first one that comes to mind when that promotion or raise is considered.
If you can save a few hours of touch typing a month as a student, imagine how much time you will free up just by touch typing at a faster pace.
How much of your job involves typing right now? Every increase in your typing speed and accuracy means hours saved over time. Double your speed, and you cut your typing time in half. What would you do with an extra hour (or more) at work, every day?
Come to think of it, what would you do with an extra hour each day of your life? Imagine the possibilities of using that time to improve some other skill, or learn a new one. Imagine having the time to pursue the dreams and ambitions that are burning in your heart.
Touch typing is more than a work skill – it’s a life skill. Teach your children how to touch type. Improve your own keyboarding skill as much as you can. The time to start benefiting from touch typing – is now!
