I got an invite for keyboarding and I am pretty sure I won't pass it because even though I've been practicing every day, I am not where I need to be. But I want to do it anyway. But there's no deadline in the email and I would prefer to do it on my day off. There's an email for contact and a number but it says it's for technical support and I think that's for the website they are using... So...? Anyone maybe called and got more info?
EDIT: GOT A CALL BACK FROM RECRUITING AND DEADLINE IS MONDAY 22ND
I’m not even sure if they see them but I’ve been leaving nice comments for them recently and I think I’m gonna keep doing it.
I have been working with Kindergarteners all year to type on laptops. Last week, my district changed devices to Chromebooks. I'm fine with that,, but my kinders are struggling because the keyboards are all lowercase now. I'm searching for some fun, K appropriate, typing games that have a lowercase keyboard.
After hours of research, many posts here (thnx to everyone who gave their advice) and finding a great deal, I decided to go ahead with the SL MK3.
The more videos I watch about this thing the more I start to worry that I might've bitten off more than I can chew. I've been playing piano for years so I'm not worried in that particular regard. I'm just worried that figuring out how to start making sounds and loops might be super confusing and frustrating.
Is there any tips you might have to someone who knows their way around a piano but completely lacks any experience with using daws and plugins? Thank you for your time.
So I'm redoing my entire desk setup so I can have a generally cleaner setup and more suited to my likings, and I'm going to be switching between my apple laptop and my gaming PC when I work and when I play games. However, I don't want to just constantly unplug and plug in my peripherals everytime I want to switch in between system, so I was wondering if there was an easier way. The first one I could think of is plugging my peripherals into my monitor, so the controls get passed over whichever system is active on the monitor. But, I don't have it setup right now, so I have no idea if it will work.
If there are any solutions that you can think of, or have worked for you, please tell me.
I've been looking through loads of keyboards, loads of switches, loads of sizes.
Size - I think I want to buy a Tenkeyless keypad as I dont think I would ever use the numpad however I dont think I could go down to a 60% keyboard because of all the shortcuts I would need to memorise.
Switch - I belive that from some sound tests that the Cherry MX Red or the Cherry MX Brown or even the Gateron Clear switches are what I'll like the most.
Layout - UK, most keyboards I end up liking end up being of a US layout, this might not bother me since never regularly using a keyboard. But still something I've took into consideration.
So after that any ideas on a keyboard that I should take a look at? My budget is flexible but I don't want to spend tons on a keyboard so realistically under £90 would be ok.
Mouse - I think I've found a mouse I'll like, the Logitech 502. I just would like to hear anyones opinions on it. Thanks.
Hope you guys can help. Cheers.
Despite being told how useless typing games were from a variety of teachers, I have ended up using those skills every day of my working life. Additionally, despite being told these skills won’t be required as more and more work moves to the cloud, the college students who we now hire are started to be overwhelmed with amount of typing they have to do in my field (honestly, their keyboarding skills are similar to my parents).
I work in education. Some of the biggest districts I work with have been cutting tech classes because “these kids are already experts” or “they use chromebooks for each class already” It’s a huge shame, in my opinion it’s like cutting Driver’s Ed because “the kids have been in cars their whole life.” So many kids I work with are tech users, but are just barely scraping the potential of the devices they have at their disposal. Schools could be doing so much more in this area, and I can’t help but think we’re letting kids down by using chromebooks/tablets as mere substitution for paper/pencil work.
FTR: I am not wholesale blaming schools. It’s a complicated issue. Schools are facing budget cuts and have less money to fund classes but are still mandated to teach the same # of classes from the same institutions that just cut their funding. This is a big reason why tech, shop, home-ec, foreign language, and other elective classes are getting cut today - and it’s a huge shame.
I had an old piece of crap adapter from my MW3 days to use keyboard on console that I found so I decided ehh fuck it let’s see how this is so I loaded up into hunt and wow it’s awful how do people play like this? It’s a handicap in my opinion controllers aren’t that bad or at least bad enough to get beat by some guy keyboarding . turning is chaos and the controls are nothing like PC

I feel like I'm really getting into this now. Steps I've discovered to leetness:
I'm really looking forward to step 6. No way it'll be a 'return to step 4'.
Now I know why the guy in the video is always talking about shipping.
tl:dr I just discovered this hobby's wet blanket of shipping!
So, I've been playing for a really long time so this feels really dumb for me to post. But, here it goes:
I've been a casual holy pally for 15 years (with HUGE breaks inbetween playing). I've always used an add on to blast my heals. Which means I've been able to move around with wasd and click spells with my mouse. A shift click here and a ctl click there gets me all the utility I need. (I'm not a raider, just lots of questing and pug dungeons).
But, now that it's a lot easier to get a max level character some of my alts are getting to end game. SO basically, how the hell do you dps?
Clicking around through my spells with my mouse and moving with wasd like I do in PVE does not seem very efficient in a group setting. It's hard to see if my mouse is in the right spot and see the target, and see the poop, etc. etc. It seems like I'd almost have to reverse it and set up my 'rotation' with the keyboard and move with the mouse.
Mostly, I guess I'd love to see a youtube video that shows someone's hands while they play.
Hey Ripe, I've posted this story on a different reddit group but I though maybe you might want to read it too so be my guest and just wondering has this happened to anyone else? Write in the comment if you can relate.
Background I dont understand y kids when they see people doing some kind of keyboarding they immediately think the're playing a game when they aren't 🤷♂️ I just find these very annoying and stupid kids.
Cast Me= myself, EK1= annoying kid 1, EK2= annoying kid 2, EF= EK's friend and L= nice librarian who realizes I am doing homework.
So this happened 2 years ago while I was taking a keyboarding course in college and I dont like working on my homework at the library because of the annoying hobgoblins that go there to play Roadblox or whatever game they always play or messing around on Minecraft (I play minecraft too but on a private server), so I try to work on my homework at college but like most college their campus isn't open on the weekend and I'm forced to go to the library where the hobgoblins hang out.
At the time is happen I had gone there early before they arrived and I hoped to finish before they got out of school, but I couldn't because apparently they didnt have school that day and came early. I'm typing away at a 15 second timed assignment and I feel a tap on my shoulder, I ignore it cause I have to type as quick as I can before the timer runs out and the tapping doesn't stop so I'm forced to stop and reset the timer, turn to see this little kids who I think are 10-12 year old standing by my computer and they ask "hey that game looks fun what's it called?"
Me: um it's not a game this is a college homework"
EK1: no it's not, there's a timer I saw u smiling, typing away and having so much fun.
Me: I was smiling cause I finally finish the part that I was stuck on for a while.
EK: does that mean it is a game?
Me: 🤦♂️ no I told u it's a college homework assignment now please leave me alone so I can finish my homework in peace.
EK: fine we'll find out how to get to that game ur playing just u wait finally walks away
Me: relieved that they finally left me along, hears one of them brats whispering
EK2: 😈😈😈😈 let's hack that b****'s game so we can play too (he really did call me that remember these kids who r 10-12 years old, 😒 kids these days).
I just ignored them and go back to my homework and no less than 15 minutes pass EF comes back.
EF: please tell us how u got there we really want to play too.
Me: *starting... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hoping you can help out with this. I am working on the discussion on keyboarding effectiveness in the high school setting for an entire year along with teaching productivity software. If you work in a high school and might be able to share some info it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for any info you can share.
Recently I have come to the realization that, while I've been a nerd and a PC user for a very long time, I never really learned to type/keyboard correctly. I do a weird sort of fast-hunt-and-peck that is really inefficient and occasionally need to look at my keyboard to type.
I would like to work on this, especially as typing is somewhat important to my career (technical writer), but I don't want to sit down and be bored out of my mind doing Mavis Beacon or whatever drills.
Are there any typing skills-based PC games I should check out that are not an absolute drag?
If you play console at any high level, you cannot break past plat 2 or so without several keyboarders on the other team for the majority of your matches. I’ve heard numbers of excuses made for these people, saying “you still have to learn to aim” or “well it’s not as good as a real keyboard” but it’s flat out cheating. It’s a crutch, it’s not intended to be a part of the game, and it gives you a serious upper hand on people using regular controllers. I will bitch about this until the day I die because as someone that has spent a lot of time and money on this game, myself and others deserve a competitive experience that we want to play.
Hey! For whatever reason ive suddenly remembered this website that my elementary/middle school used to teach kids proper typing form and increase how fast we typed. I dont remember much but you had to pass off a letter/group of letters and move on to a new animal or something? I honestly don't know but it's been driving me crazy!
I used to not notice that many people keyboard in pubs but now I see one every 2 or 3 games
