Keyboarding for Elementary Students

Leigh Zeitz

Keyboarding is a staple in school curricula. In the past, it has been taught at the middle school and high school levels by business teachers. It has been a separate course which involved learning the motoric skills of typing as well as formatting skills in writing reports and various forms of correspondence (Erthal, 1998; Rogers, 2006). Today the majority of school districts introduce students to keyboarding basics in elementary school. Teaching keyboarding/typing in the elementary classroom is nothing new.

This research aims to know the effectiveness of rapid typing software and module in improving students typing skills. The program of Automatic Expertise and Office Governance requires students to be able to master typing skills. The population of the study was 62 students of class X OTKP 1 and OTKP 2 in SMK N 7 Yogyakarta. Samples were 30 students of class X OTKP 2 and the class selection used simple random sampling technique. The data collection methods were text typing skills documentations and Multivariate Analysis of Variance (MANOVA) test method was used for the data analysis. The simultaneous test results show the significance of 0.000 < 0.05, it means all variables have a significant influence on typing skills. While the test results partially indicate that the rapid typing software and module only have a significant influence on the sub competence of typing speed, but no impact on the accuracy of typing. Based on these findings it can be concluded that rapid typing softwa...

Fine motor skills like typing involve a mapping problem that trades Fitts' law against Hick's law. Eight fingers have to be mapped onto 26 keys. Movement time increases with distance, so Fitts' law is optimized by recruiting more fingers. Choice difficulty increases with the number of alternatives, so Hick's law is optimized by recruiting fewer fingers. The effect of the number of alternatives decreases with consistent practice, so skilled typists achieve a balance between Fitts' law and Hick's law through learning. We tested this hypothesis by comparing standard typists who use the standard QWERTY mapping consistently with nonstandard typists who use fewer fingers less consistently. Typing speed and accuracy were lower for nonstandard typists, especially when visual guidance was reduced by removing the letters from the keys or covering the keyboard. Regression analyses showed that accommodation to Fitts' law (number of fingers) and Hick's law (consis...

Interkey timing in piano performance and typing.

The transparency of perceptual experience has been invoked in support of many views about perception. I argue that it supports a form of enactivism – the view that capacities for perceptual experience and for intentional agency are essentially interdependent. I clarify the perceptual phenomenon at issue, and argue that enactivists should expect to find a parallel instance of transparency in our agentive experience, and that the two forms of transparency are constitutively interdependent (Section 1). I then argue that i) we do indeed find such parallels: the way in which an action is directed towards its goal through our bodily movements parallels the way in which an experience is directed towards its object through our perceptual sensation (Section 2), and ii) reflecting on sensorimotor skills shows why the two instances of transparency are constitutively interdependent (Section 3). Section 4 gives reasons for generalizing beyond the cases considered so far by applying the enactive view to Kohler's landmark studies of perceptual adaptation. The final section clarifies the form of enactivism to which the previous sections point. The view that emerges is one whereby our perceptual and practical skills are interrelated aspects of a single capacity to have one's mind intentionally directed upon the world. The transparency of experience,

Children spend a large proportion of their school day engaged in tasks that require manual dexterity. If children experience difficulties with their manual dexterity skills it can have a consequential effect on their academic achievement. The first aim of this paper was to explore whether an online interactive typing intervention could improve children's scores on a standardised measure of manual dexterity. The second aim was to implement a serial reaction time tapping task as an index of children's finger movement learning, and to see whether performance on this task would improve after the intervention. Seventy-eight typically developing children aged between 8 and 10 were tested at their school on the pre-intervention Movement Assessment Battery for Children (2nd edition; MABC-2) and tapping tasks. Twenty-eight of these children volunteered to be randomly allocated to the intervention or control group. Children in the intervention group had a choice of two online games to...

In this paper, we compare writing processes for twenty second year university students who participated in two different simulated, keyboard, writing tasks: a spontaneous writing task (FB, writing a Facebook message to a friend) and a planned writing task (ES, a short essay writing task). The main aim of this study is to determine to what extent these are truly different writing tasks as experienced by the students and whether there is any evidence that different writing processes are involved. We also consider keyboard efficiency as a factor in digital writing processes. Our findings suggest that the more informal the language production context, the more likely we are to find a primarily linear writing process. Also, a high degree of attention to accuracy at the point of inscription can lead to a more linear writing process even in more formal writing contexts.

The main aim of this study was to estimate the digraph costs (interkey-stroke times) based on the digraph (two consecutive keys) tapping rates for the optimization of keyboard layouts considering the touch typing principles. The study also investigated the effects of column, row, hand and period on digraph-tapping rate. For the purpose, a laboratory experiment was performed with seven subjects using a conventional keyboard. Digraph-tapping rates of a total of 241 same hand digraphs were recorded for a duration of 2-min. The interkey-stroke times were calculated as the digraph costs for the same hand digraphs using the estimated mean digraph-tapping rates. The different hand digraph costs were calculated based on the same hand digraph costs and the results of a previous study. The results indicated significant column, row, hand and period effect on the digraph-tapping rate. Using the digraph costs and the digraph frequencies of the considered language in a quadratic assignment problem, an optimal touch typing keyboard layout can be developed to satisfy all but one of Dvorak's touch typing criteria. As an application, an optimal keyboard layout, called Turkish I-layout, is developed for Turkish language. The comparison results between I and existing Turkish F and Q layouts showed that the I-layout is superior both according to the results of the optimization and Dvorak's criteria. Relevance to industry: Optimal and ergonomic keyboard layouts improve typing performance and reduce the likelihood of upper extremity disorders. The digraph-tapping rates estimated through this study are essential for the development of such layouts.

This paper explores how speech and action are coordinated in a web-based task undertaken by two high school students working collaboratively at the computer. The paper focuses on the coordination involved in the interactions between the two students and the computer screen, keyboard, and mouse, and explores the temporal synchrony and ‘matching’ points between speaking and typing, and speaking and mouse movements, within and between participants. Examples include coordination of speaking words aloud whilst typing, coordination of reading aloud from the screen and mouse movements, and coordination between participants, as when one individual is typing and the other talking. The discussion draws on the literature describing the coordination of language and action, kinesic behaviour, and nonverbal communication, including gesture, which have the potential to mediate conversation. Results indicate most coordination of talk and action is at the beginning of the action. Sometimes work is done to ensure coordination, either by slowing down the talk or pausing or stretching sounds mid-utterance. Talk that is coordinated temporally to some action on the screen is precise; in other words even when action and talk are mismatched (e.g., she is not talking about what she is doing), talk and action can start and finish together.

The F-layout was introduced in 1955 and eventually enforced as a national standard as a replacement to the popular QWERTY keyboard layout in Turkey. In a more recent work, another alternative (E-layout) was developed for Turkish language and argued to be faster and more comfortable than the F-layout. However, there has not been any empirical evidence favouring any of these layouts so far. To fill this research gap in the literature, we have employed a hybrid model and conducted both between-subjects and within-subjects user experiments with twelve freshmen majoring in computer engineering. The experimental results show that there is no significant difference between learning percentage of these two layouts but the completion time of typing a trial passage with the F-layout is significantly lower than the E-layout. The F-layout has also a significantly lower physical demand score, as revealed by the subjective assessments of participants. Based on our user survey data, we also discus...

A study was conducted to obtain performance data for entering text on a mobile phone in order to compare it to performance predictions based on interaction models. Speed data was obtained for two text input methods, T9, QWERT keypad, Text Input and Multi-tap. While the direction of the results was the same for both the performance data and both model predictions (with predictive text entry being faster than Multi-tap text entry), the results for all three differed in magnitude. This paper focuses on one of these “previewing”, and how a sensory enhanced input device called “PreSense Keypad” can provide a preview for users before they actually execute the commands. previewable feature helps users to see what will occur next. It is also helpful when the command assignment of the keypad dynamically changes, such as for universal commanders. We present several interaction techniques based on this input device, including menu and scroll-wheel and a text input system. We also discuss finger gesture recognition for the PreSense Keypad.

In cognitive and educational sciences, the writing process is an incessantly debated area, particularly when it comes to the newer methods of writing on keyboards and touchscreen devices. Despite controversies, learning through writing with digital devices remains an overlooked area of cognition. To address this gap, in this study, an embodied knowledge construction model that merges Hayes’ framework for understanding cognition and affect in writing with Wilson’s six aspects of embodied cognition was tested among six 16-year-old adolescents. The data comprised memory tests written with a pencil, laptop keyboard, mobile phone touch screen keyboard and a questionnaire. The purpose was to not only examine the adolescents’ recollection after one week of writing stories with these three modalities but also reflect and examine issues affecting the results, which would help develop and validate the embodied knowledge construction model. The results indicate that valuable information was ad...

With the introduction of touchscreen keyboards, the world of typing has taken a fundamental shift. Touchscreen keyboards have not only decreased maintenance, but have also been of practical use in many devices that are being used in modern electronic market. Touchscreen keyboards have already been billed as the future of keyboards; hence it becomes vital to study the various factors that affect the speed of typists on touchscreen keyboards to make them better and more viable for them to replace hard keyboards in the future. The paper tries to examine the effect of home row positioning, tactile feedback and auditory feedback on the typing speeds of the users.

An intelligent Thai computer terminal and a Thai text editor with the function of automatic and consecutive conversion from Roman spelling to Thai letters have been developed which are operable on a micro computer. These employ the Transliteration Method (TM) or the Simplified Transliteration Method (STM), which are based on a newly devised transliteration table from Roman spelling. We are now developing a database and a computer concordance of the Three Seals Law (Kotmaz· Tra Sam Duang), and making a machine-readable Thai dictionary using this terminal and editor. The Transliteration and Simplified Transliteration Methods were both estimated to require a greater number of key strokes in the making of the machine-readable Thai dictionary than the method used for the ordinary IBM electronic Thai typewriter, here called the Direct Mapping Method (DMM). However, an evaluation of learning effects from the number of key strokes and the measurement of learning curves in the input of the T...

Twenty-eight of these children volunteered to be randomly allocated to the intervention or control group. Children in the intervention group had a choice of two online games to play at home over a period of four weeks, while the children in the control group were not given these games to play. The intervention and control groups were then re-tested on the MABC-2 manual dexterity and the tapping task. Children in the intervention group significantly improved their manual dexterity scores in the MABC-2 compared to the control group. On average, all children learnt the tapping sequence, however, there were no group differences and no effect of the intervention on the tapping task. These results have important implications for implementing a freely available, easy to administer, fun and interactive intervention to help children improve their manual dexterity skills.

By using a computer keyboard as a finger recording device, we construct the largest existing dataset for gesture recognition via surface electromyography (sEMG), and use deep learning to achieve over 90% character-level accuracy on reconstructing typed text entirely from measured muscle potentials. We prioritize the temporal structure of the EMG signal instead of the spatial structure of the electrode layout, using network architectures inspired by those used for real-time spoken language transcription. Our architecture recognizes the rapid movements of natural computer typing, which occur at irregular intervals and often overlap in time. The extensive size of our dataset also allows us to study gesture recognition after synthetically downgrading the spatial or temporal resolution, showing the system capabilities necessary for real-time gesture recognition.

Variation in one form or another is an inevitable aspect of human motor performance as the body negotiates the degrees of freedom problem while also adapting to ever-changing task constraints. The constraints to action model suggests that movement patterns arise from within a framework of environmental, task, and personal constraints. Like athletes, musicians adapt to a wide variety of constraints such as the presence and effect of spectators; acoustics in different performing spaces; humidity affecting tuning; and interpersonal interactions characterizing chamber and ensemble music. A crucial constraint particular to piano performance is adapting to the unique attributes of a wide variety of keyboard instruments. Pianists often refer to the distinct “feel” of a particular instrument: its responsiveness and sensitivity; key resistance; and the evenness and predictability of the instrument. Movement control both within and across pianos is essential for optimal performance, and in th...

The idea that cognition is controlled hierarchically is appealing to many but is difficult to demonstrate empirically. Often, nonhierarchical theories can account for the data as well as hierarchical ones do. The purpose of this chapter is to document the case for hierarchical control in skilled typing and present it as an example of a strategy for demonstrating hierarchical control in other cognitive acts. We propose that typing is controlled by two nested feedback loops that can be distinguished in terms of the factors ...

The present study investigated the way people acquire and control skilled performance in the context of typewriting. Typing skill was degraded by changing the location of a key (target key) while retaining the locations of other keys to disable an association between the letter and the key. We conducted 4 experiments: Experiment 1 demonstrated that disabling a letter-key association affected not only the execution of the target keystroke but also the planning of other keystrokes for words involving the target key. In Experiments 2-4, typists practiced with a new target location and then transferred to a condition in which they typed the practiced words with the original key location (Experiment 2) or typed new words with the practiced key location (Experiments 3 and 4). Experiment 2 showed that the newly acquired letter-key association interfered with the execution of the original keystroke but not planning. Experiments 3 and 4 demonstrated that acquisition of the new letter-key ass...

At the same time, using the longer process can give you more options in terms of changes and edits if you need to make big changes. You’ll have a broader range of tools to edit text, adjust font size, and add or remove text or images from your written documents.
