As I attempt to express the importance of keyboarding to my students I am wondering if there is research out there explaining the financial benefits of the skill.

Several years ago I heard somewhere that people who know how to keyboard correctly are more likely to go to college, and make $10-15 more per hour than someone who does not.

I cannot find this research again though. Does anyone have this research or know where it may be? 

I have looked and looked, but to no avail.

Thanks,

Phil

Hi there,

A while back I created a voice thread to highlight some of the research about Keyboarding in the Primary grades - you can find it here: http://voicethread.com/share/766732/

Hope this helps!

I humbly recommend you consider and share this literature review on keyboarding instruction - http://stager.tv/blog/?p=2604

Be sure to note the publication date.
