How will I or My Child Benefit from Learning to Touch Type?

Trying to use a keyboard without touch typing is like writing with a feather and a pot of ink – painfully slow!

Touch typing is about “movement memory” – so you no longer need to try and remember where specific keys are located on the keyboard, free'ing the brain to concentrate only on content.

Once properly mastered, touch typing is a skill that serves well – not just for those at School and University, but throughout our lives on a daily basis – so few skills offer such a good return on such a small investment.

  • Save hours of time and frustration. By encouraging the correct fingering of keys, and using both hands, early learners don’t get into the bad habits of typing with only one hand or slow key pecking with one finger - habits that can be difficult to break. 

  • Touch typing benefits cognitive development and supports learning by improving both working speed and grammar/literacy. 

  • The benefits can be seen across all subjects as learners gain quicker cognitive jumps in their work.


Once mastered - never forgotten.

Stop being another “Electro Chicken” hunting and pecking at your keyboard.

"Electro-chickens peck slowly and require stoppage time for corrections. Whilst they may peck at 20 words per minute, corrections halve this to around 10wpm, whereas an average touch typist will do 50-60 wpm”.
