Strategies for Better Typing

Okay, so you figured out that you're not that great a typist. What can you do about it?

To be an excellent typist, you need to do more than learn the position of the keys on the keyboard. You must form good typing habits, and try to avoid falling into bad habits.

Here are a few typing habits you should cultivate:

  • Position. Proper body/hand/arm position will decrease errors and fatigue. Keep your feet flat on the floor.

  • Peeking - Don't Do It! As tempting as it might be, don't look at the keyboard when typing. The goal is to force your brain to learn where the keys are without looking.

    Peeking sabotages this effort. Once you've learned the position of the keys, force your hands to make the corrections without help from your eyes.

  • Practice. The only way to "train" the neural connections between your brain and your fingers is to practice a lot. With enough practice you'll be able to touch type, meaning you never need to look at the keyboard. So practice, practice, and practice some more.

Proper hand position hasn't changed much in decades. Below is a keyboard typing chart from 1937. Listed on each finger of the chart are the keys that finger presses when typing.

It's the same as what's used today. Cool, huh?

So as you practice with these fun typing games, and when typing at other times, keep the good habits in mind. If you find yourself falling into bad typing habits, make corrections. Stay focused on improvement, and you will get better at typing.
