Keyboarding with Creative Writing F19

$49

with Paula Raymond, Mid-Maine Regional Adult Community Education

Calendar Sep 5, 2019 at 10:30 am
Keyboarding skills are necessary as they impact the ability of a person to communicate both socially and professionally in today’s ever-changing technological world. Keyboarding skills are used in word processing and database software, email or instant message communications. In an academic setting, keyboarding skills are a substantial time-saver and a tool for students at any level; those who are unable to use this tool may fall behind or spend unnecessary time typing their work on a computer. Proficiency in this skill is a requirement in today’s job market. Keyboarding also facilitates the development of writing, spelling and grammar. This is a blended class with an expectation of daily practice at home to be eligible for high school credit. Although lessons will be facilitated in keyboarding skills, a creative writing component has been added to the course as a supplemental piece to assist in developing the mechanics of the keys with practical applications of basic writing skills. Limit 15 students. No class Nov. 28.
