Common Core Standards include keyboarding as a skill that must be demonstrated. The following Writing Standard is included in the Production and Distribution of Writing sections for grades 3-8: “Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing as well as to interact and collaborate with others.” At 4th grade an additional standard is included: “Demonstrate sufficient command of keyboarding skills to type a minimum of one page in a single sitting.” and one more page is added at each grade level.
