A teenager saw me typing recently without looking at the keyboard and was amazed. There are no keyboarding classes in the high school here any more, I guess, and I think that is a mistake.
I didn't learn that at school, though. (typing with all my fingers, without looking at the keyboard).
At school, the typing classes were one of the extra courses (= obligatory hours, but not part of the basic educational package). They gave you a choice of topics for those extra hours, based on your basic educational package.
Typing was popular because the exam for it was easy and didn't require any study at home and neither did you have homework for it. You could pass it based on your exercises at school. Nice and easy, thus a popular choice.
When I even dared to suggest it as an option, my father made it quite clear that no child of his was going to pick a topic just because it's easy. He told me that you can always learn how to type in your own free time but those extra courses could be spend more usefully - Economics one year and German and Physics the next year). So, he gave me an instruction booklet on typing and I ended up learning it on my own indeed after spending too much time typing out a report with 2 fingers while having to look at the keyboard too often.
