Title: WELCOME TO KEYBOARDING BOOT CAMP


1
WELCOME TO KEYBOARDING BOOT CAMP!
  • By Mrs. Whiteford

2
What is keyboarding?
  • The act of placing information into various types
    of equipment using a typewriter like keyboard.
  • Keyboard emphasizes input.
  • Keyboarding produces a document which appears on
    a monitor and can be modified and stored in
    memory for access later.

3
Why is it important I learn?
  • Teachers and parents agree that effective
    computer use is a requisite outcome for all
    students. In order to accomplish this required
    level of computer competence, a productive
    computer keyboarding skill is essential.

4
Why do we need to learn?
  • Students must be ready to work with the
    technological world ahead of them!

What you will learn…
  • Description Students will learn the home keys on
    the computer keyboard, the rest of the alphabet
    keys, and the number keys.

    forward.

Hands and wrists

Home Keys
  • To increase typing speed keep fingers on the home
    keys.
  • The home keys are in the middle of letters on the
    keyboard
  • A, S, D, F, J, K, L,
  • and semicolon

11
WRISTS
  • Try to keep your wrists straight and level with
    your lower arms while you type. Avoid bending
    your wrists too much as it makes it harder for
    your fingers to work and could hurt your wrist
    over time. Some kids like wrist rests in front of
    keyboards to help keep their wrists straight, but
    don't rest on them while typing.

Wrists Dos and Donts
13
ARMS
  • Keep your arms relaxed and elbows close keep
    shoulders relaxed.

14
FEET
  • Keep feet flat on the floor.

15
EYES AND MONITOR
  • The computer monitor (screen) should be right in
    front of you and a little lower than your eyes.
  • Looking up can cause shoulder, neck pain and a
    headache.

16
Take a break!
  • Time can fly when you are having fun on the
    computer! It is important that you take a break
    from the computer and do other things during the
    day.
  • It is recommended that you break at least every
    30 minutes of straight computer work.
  • Get up stretch, take a walk, exercise or eat a
    healthy snack to get energy.

17
Your eyes also need a break!
  • Pay attention to your eyes. If they hurt that
    means they needa break from the monitor too.
  • Look away for a few seconds and focus on
    something else.

    educational and fun, but nothing compares to
    adventures and activities in the "real world".
