From the responses that I received for when Keyboarding should begin and what people use –
Second grade seemed to be the main grade level to begin
Type to Learn 4 was the main product used.
Although, 2nd grade was the majority some schools did begin as early as Kindergarten!
The below link was also sent to me which was good to see –
The Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction has published some guidance information regarding keyboarding in relation to the Common Core State Standards and the Smarter Balanced assessment, which you can access at http://bit.dpi.wi.gov/bit_keyboarding.
Thank you all,
