Keyboard Success! Microtype "PAWS" Version. Computer Flip Book.
Fidanque, Ann; And Others
Designed for use by elementary and middle school students, this computer flip book contains the exercises for each lesson in a 30-lesson keyboarding program, a brief outline of the development of writing devices, and exercises for 25 bonus lessons. For each lesson, the flip book provides a keyboard diagram with the keys that have been introduced and practice exercises. The primary instructional objectives are to teach students how to: (1) keyboard from a correct position; (2) identify the names for the fingers to be used to keyboard; and (3) locate the most frequently used keys with the correct finger. No special software is needed for instruction, and students can enter the lessons on a paper keyboard template, typewriter, blank computer screen, or any word processor. The program can be used in conjunction with a commercial software program; this version of the flip book is designed to be used with the Apple, Commodore, and IBM versions of "MicroType: The Wonderful World of Paws."
