eReflect company, the developer of Ultimate Typing™ software, revealed today that a state-wide longitudinal study on touch typing in elementary schools confirms the hypothesis that typing skills positively affect a student’s reading and vocabulary. According to eReflect, the benefits of typing skills affect and apply to many other skills, including an improvement in reading, writing, spelling, and vocabulary, as well as more general benefits such as boosting creativity and motivating students to work on their homework when this entails computer use.
According to eReflect, typing is a unique technological literacy skill that boosts the efficiency of other typing-related skills. Typing efficiency allows the student to adequately handle typed homework assignments and essays and it encourages students to focus on studying rather than worrying about their insufficient keyboarding skills. A robust, effective typing program, eReflect explained, can introduce young students as young as 6 years old to the art of touch typing. Later on, the student can focus on a more thorough touch typing training program to build the their touch typing skills. eReflect also noted that the ubiquity of computers and other keyboard-based devices in today's society means that children of increasingly younger ages are in one way or another exposed to touch typing. Children as young as 4 and 5 years old use computers, laptops, and tablets under adult supervision to play various educational games. It should not come as a surprise that children tend to pick up on the art of typing quickly and effortlessly, eReflect emphasized.
eReflect said that learning touch typing at a young age seems to improve students’ vocabulary breadth and usage, as it exposes them to a wide range of new words through the various typing drills and exercises. eReflect encourages parents of young children to expose them to touch typing early so as to boost their overall linguistic and technological literacy in substantial and measurable ways.
