Back in the day, you used to learn your keyboarding skills in Typing class. You used this thing called a typewriter and you learned how to type by touch, the proper format to use for correspondence, and all kinds of other nifty stuff. Nowadays, there's hardly a typewriter to be found anywhere, and not many folks mail a letter, but we live our lives typing—into computers. That means that those typing skills are still pretty important.
