I recently engaged in another conversation slash argument about whether it is worthwhile for seventh graders to learn keyboarding skills. I am of the opinion that drill and kill methods for keyboarding does nothing but suck the love of computing out of our young people. I have seen it happen with my own daughter and fear will happen with my son next fall.
So just to demonstrate the alternatives available today for strong keyboarding skills, I have narrated this post using the windows seven voice recognition tool. I could do some minor editing to clean it up, but instead I will leave it the way it was translated as speech to text by the narrator.
Not too bad, if you ask me.
