How do kids taught touch typing before when software was not so popular?
Several approaches have been use to teach touch typing such as students learning from their own, printed typing drill books, previous-generation typing software, and simple online typing games.

Personally, I learned to type before the internet made it fun to learn to do so! I simply taught myself how to type through repeated use of the keyboard. It wasn’t until adulthood, when my self-taught method started causing pain, that I knew it was time to revisit the skill to truly learn how to do it properly. Thankfully, the world of typing has progressed a lot since my early days!
