It is very important to learn to use the computer keyboard correctly. At Bancroft, students are setting out to learn to type quickly and accurately without looking at their fingers. Even students that don't take computer classes can learn this at home! There are many free keyboarding websites and games. The important thing is that you learn where to put your fingers and follow the directions on the websites.

Typing Web: Create a free account and learn to type from the beginning.
