FAQ Qwertynomics

What do I need to do before the workshop?
Optional - Go to www.qwertynomics.eprof.com/shop and download our software. This can be done prior to our workshop.  If you have not downloaded the software in advance, please ensure that students have administration rights and passwords to download the software on the day.

BYOL = Bring your own laptop. What does this mean?
We ask your child to bring their own laptop with them to this workshop so they can have a go.  

Is there a difference between Touch Typing and looking at your hands when typing?
Yes, there is a huge difference. There are lots of advantages toTouch Typing, including increasing speed and accuracy, being able to type without concious thought, taking notes directly and increased multitasking. Adults who have learnt to type as a child without looking at their hands say that it is one of the most important skills they have ever learned. 
 
There is lots of typing software on the market. Why should my child attend a typing class instead?
We are not just about the software. We have built our Qwertynomics methodology around children's learning styles and needs. We use a multisensory approach in order to allow all students to work in their own style and at their own pace. We pride ourselves on our results and our students' happiness and success. Our program is also suitable for children who have a wide range of special needs. 

What is the best age to learn to type?
By the age of 7, children's brains are mature enough to learn to type effectively. Their fingers also have the motor skills and size required to type on a Qwerty keyboard successfully before poor typing habits are formed. It is never too late to learn. We have successfully taught over 1,400 students from age 6 years to 85 years.
