1st Grade Education

So during dinner tonight, Crystal was telling me all about her typing class in school. She knows where her hands go on the keyboard and which fingers push which keys etc. I was in shock. I asked her if they do it in front of a computer, and she said yes, they go to a computer lab a couple times a week.

Seriously. I dont think the next generation will have any problems with all the new technology if they are dealing with todays technology in 1st grade. I didnt take my first typing class till 8th or 9th grade. And it was on keyboards and computers that ran word perfect.

Can you imagine watching Crystal typing a document without looking at her hands?

Things sure have changed.

It's crazy, isn't it?? Maddey goes to the computer lab once a week in Kindergarten!

For some reason, I actually CAN imagine Crystal typing a document without looking. ( :
