Go, Type, Go

Help me give my students the keyboard attachments for the Microsoft Surface Go so that they may learn not only the touch skills, but typing skills as well.

My Students

My students are my heart. They are the reason that I get up and head into school every morning.

Our school resides in one of the toughest neighborhoods in town, with most families living at or below the poverty line.

So many of my students live in single family homes or for some with an alternative adult. Yet they come to school each day eager to learn and to grow as individuals.

My students have some of the biggest dreams to become astronauts, scientists, doctors, and teachers. They all want to be world changers, difference makers, and problem solvers. I want it all for them and will cheer them on until they reach their goals. I will also be there to cheer them on when they pick their next goal. Every child in my class has the potential to be a great success story.

My Project

Typing is a skill that is a necessity today in our digital world. Most students know how to use a touch screen, but when it comes to typing, they are unsure of the letter placement, finger alignment, and they do not have the fine motor skills to move within the keyboard. Typing on the Microsoft Surface Go Type Cover keyboard attachment will give them the practice they need.

I want to change the way students use and see digital usage.

I want students to be so comfortable with their alphabet and have such dexterity in their fingers and hands, that typing for them becomes the preferred method of digital use. Having the skills to type also promotes a deeper understanding of the alphabet, words, and sentences.
