Transcript of Keyboarding QSI

Technology In the beginning Abacus Typing 1. TSW key the alphabetic and numeric keyboard by touch using the correct finger of the correct hand.

2. TSW apply the skill of touch keyboarding to all areas of study whenever possible.

3. TSW use the correct hand for all alphabetic, numeric, and special purpose keys including cursor (arrow) keys, escape key, delete key, and the break key.

4. TSW demonstrate proper technique including but not limited to ergonomically correct posture.

5. TSW type at a speed of at least 35 words per minute with greater than 90% accuracy. The Big Stuff When at rest the fingers of the typist's right hand are positioned, lightly, on the 4-5-6-+ keys.

The right index finger will control the 4 key.
The right middle finger will control the 5 key.
The right ring finger will control the 6 key.
The right little finger will control the + key.
The 0 is controlled by the right thumb. Shift with opposite hand Don't use backspace- work on not making mistakes. Think of a rhythm Line up on the J Back straight leaned forward slightly. Elbows in Arms relaxed Fingers doing the work. Fingers return to the home
row. Hand and wrist injuries caused by typing are more common than it sounds. We think we are perfectly safe sitting here in front of the computer typing on the keyboard and clicking away at the mouse, but the repetitive motion of the keystrokes is putting use at risk for hand and wrist injuries.

The most common of hand and wrist injuries caused by typing is Carpel Tunnel Syndrome. Caused by repetitive motions such as typing and knitting, Carpel Tunnel Syndrome produces tingling feelings, weakness, pain, or numbness felt in the fingers, thumb, hand, and sometimes into the forearm. Surgery can correct the Carpel Tunnel however symptoms can be lessened by taking vitamin B6, strengthening shoulder and arms, wearing a night splint, taking anti-inflammatory medications, and applying ice.

A Ganglion is a cyst that is filled with a clear jelly like fluid. Also known as a Baker's Cyst, the Ganglion can appear where there has been previous joint or tendon damage. The cysts can break and dissolve on there own; however, they can be drained, injected with a steroid, or surgically removed. The cyst may grow larger with the movements of the effected area.

Most hand and wrists injuries that are caused by the repetitive motions of typing can be prevented. Proper posture and positioning of the wrists while typing and prevent most of the typing injuries to the hands and wrists. Taking breaks and stretching will also keep injuries at bay. Max Day 2: Bad Posture Accident
Dear Mr. Lamwers
Max blinked his eyes today he still hasn't spoken. Why didn't he listen to you? WHY? Oh aha aha ... aha aha. Thank you for trying!
The saddest women in the world,

Cindy (Max's mom) Technique Checklist
The following is a complete and comprehensive technique checklist. Look for the following elements in the technique of students.
Does the student display correct body posture?

Spine straight, against back of chair, leaning slightly forward from the waist.
Centered in front of keyboard (body directly in front of "J" key).
Sitting a comfortable distance from keyboard (a hand span is suggested).
Feet on the floor (if possible), slightly apart for body balance.

Does the student display correct arm and hand position?

Arms relaxed; elbows naturally close to body.
Forearms nearly parallel with slope of keyboard.
Fingers curved, tips of fingers resting lightly on keys.
Hands close enough together to "lock" thumbs.
Fingers upright, not leaning toward little fingers.
Hands and wrists "quiet," almost motionless.
Wrists low, but palms of hands not resting on the keyboard.
Does the student display correct keystroking?

Beginning and ending all keystrokes at home row position.
Keying each key with the correct finger.
Keying the space bar with the thumb of the right hand.
Shifting with the appropriate "little" finger.
When shifting, when depressing shift key, when striking key, when releasing shift.
Using the "little" finger of the right hand for the enter or return key.
Keeping eyes on copy (text, screen, board, etc.) rather than the keyboard, once a key has been learned.
When students forget the location of a previously learned key, are they encouraged to consult the text/wall chart/software keyboard illustration, rather than looking down at the actual keyboard. Did I plagiarize? Always uses the correct finger of the correct hand to key the alphabetic and numeric keyboard by touch, without looking at the keyboard and with minimal amount of mistakes. Always uses correct touch keyboarding whenever keyboarding is used. The student Always uses the correct hand for all alphabetic, numeric, and special purpose keys including cursor (arrow) keys, escape key, delete key, and the break key. Always demonstrates proper technique including but not limited to ergonomically correct posture when using a computer. Always types at a consistent speed of more than 35 words per minute with accuracy greater than 90%. This speed is achieved while doing dictations and transcription lessons. The test will be taken over two class periods. Students will be graded using the unit 1 rubric which includes multiple inventories (posture, keystroke) and the WPM requirement of 35 WPM with at least a 90% accuracy. Special KEys Escape: initiates an escape sequence. Arrow Keys move your cursor or help you navigate a game or paper. Delete Key: erases letters to the left of the cursor or can be used to clear selected items. PrtScn: creates copy of or prints the entire screen.
