A printable keyboard is a great way to practice typing and helps students build hand-eye connections. They come in different layouts and color codes so that you can easily match your classroom keyboards.
They are also perfect for assessing older students on key placement and hand-eye connection. They are also great for word work (spelling, vocab, writing practice) at any age level.
What Are The Keys On A Keyboard?
The keys on a keyboard are a set of keys that can be pressed to perform specific functions. Labeled as F1, F2, F3, and so on, up to F12, these keys are used to do specific things in different software programs.
A keyboard can also be set up to have a number pad or numeric keypad. These are handy for entering numbers quickly when you’re using a calculator or adding machine.
Most computers have a row of function keys on the top of the keyboard. These are labeled as F1 to F12.
There are some other special keys too, such as the Caps Lock key, Space bar key, Shift key, Enter key, Backspace key, and Symbol key.
Some of the special keys are more complex and have specific functions that you might not be aware of. For example, the Tab key can move between items or move forward 5 characters (depending on the task).
The Break key is used to stop a program execution or to interrupt modem connections. Its origins date to teleprinters, when people wanted a way to interrupt the line while a machine was sending the information they wanted.
This printable keyboard is great for introducing students to the basics of typing. It is available as a free download.
This large print keyboard has big, black letters on a yellow surface. This makes it easier for people who have low vision to see the letters.
It also features additional keys that allow users to access commonly used commands, such as one-touch e-mail and Internet hotkeys.
Another feature that this keyboard has is a backlighting system. The backlighting makes it much easier for those who have low vision to see the keyboard at night.
The keyboard has a detachable flexible LED strip light that can be used to illuminate the keys. This also helps improve the contrast on the keyboard, making it even more useful for those with low vision.
The keyboard is compatible with Windows 98 and up as well as Mac OS. It has been rated for over 10 million keystrokes and is quiet and soft to use.
