Today, every child needs to learn how to properly type on a computer keyboard. Did you know that hunting and pecking is a stumbling block to your child’s creative flow? Besides slowing them down, wasting their time looking for the correct key to press instead of communicating their thoughts they are putting undue stress and strain on the ligaments and tendons of their wrists and fingers. Over time this can cause injuries such as tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome. What’s more is that children are now being asked to take national standardized tests on computers which require them to type. By using PALS to learn how to type correctly your child will have a competitive edge! Touch typing programs use a method created over 100 years ago! Ever wonder why these programs use nerve-wracking exercises and time-speed tests? Beginning in the 1920’s adults wanting to enter the job market had a paycheck to motivate them to stick with touch typing. PALS is a revolutionary approach to teaching young children proper keyboarding technique. The children are enthralled by the adorable puppets who sing songs, tell stories, use humor to create a relaxed and stress free learning environment. The result eliminates the need to test, monitor, and hover over every action your child makes during the learning process. Young children will pick up speed and accuracy over time. Just like learning to ride a bike comes after several attempts and a few bruised knees, your child will gain proficiency after learning how to type the correct way with PALS. PALS is unique. We accelerate the learning process by linking in a child’s mind our puppets to a story, to a letter, to a key, and the finger that presses that key. By using this associative method we cement the keyboarding lessons. Within the first five minutes of using the PALS method a child’s confidence soars as he/she is typing real words!
