Learning how to read and write is a fundamental task at school. Today touchtyping is also elementary for children. The number of tasks in school and in daily ife that needs typewriting are growing fast. Research, done by Dr. Van der Meijden at the Radboud University, shows that students who are able to use touch typing with ten fingers, are significant better to answer questions on the computer. These children don't need to focus to know where the keys are on the keyboard, giving their full potential to focus on the question rather than the keyboard.
