Google showed me an article today that is about 3D and coding. It seems strange to me that coding is promoted as part of the UK curriculum, and yet touch typing which is an essential skill for efficient work is still being ignored. Most other countries teach touch typing, recognising it is a skill that can be easily taught. “Disassociation from one’s hands” is not something UK pupils understand!
“The dissociation from one’s hands and input devices is easier for him and his fellow coders, he tells me, because they’re so used to touch typing anyway. Indeed, my fingers are already humming along as I adjust to this strange keyboard.”
