Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The microcomputer is creating a revolution in the workplace and having a major impact on educational programs in the school. With this emphasis on the use of computers, keyboarding is a skill needed to survive and succeed in both educational and occupational settings. Regardless of the ultimate career objectives of students, the keyboarding skills taught today will help them open the doors of tomorrow. The job of business educators is to help students make keyboarding a life-long tool. Hinson and Dickey (1984) pointed out that whether their students go out and work in a warehouse entering inventory or whether they become presidents of Fortune 500 companies and use complex integrated software, they will all use a keyboard in some phase of their work. Modilin ( 1984), editor for Business and Office Education at Gregg/McGraw-Hill, stated, "Keyboarding must be a requirement of every student in your school" (p. 4).
