What age is appropriate for keyboarding?

My daughter is 10 years old. Is this appropriate for keyboarding?

Hi there,

By the end of Grade 4, students are supposed to know how to use a keyboard to write and publish one page of text—approximately 250 words—in a single sitting. In later grades, educators expect those skills to grow until by Grade 12 students can type a recommended 50 words a minute at 99% accuracy.

Hi Rojin,

Practicing good keyboarding skills is good for any age, but it is recommended to start students no earlier than age 7 to allow for full development of the motor skills necessary. So, yes,10 is a great age to get started.
