Word Processing - Early Years of School
We use iPads in our K1 - Year 2 classes so like you, I don't think it's really appropriate to teach students keyboarding at that age. I believe it makes the most sense when students begin using laptops/computers regularly. We wouldn't expect our students to be able to multiply without ever teaching them adding before and I feel it's a bit of the same with keyboarding. Keyboarding should be taught when it will be meaningful and useful to students and their learning.
