This was on NPR, here in San Francisco.

While I don't buy into all of the Common Core mumbo jumbo in the US
(my kid has to go through this, so we are dealing with it as parents),
the importance of keyboards is interesting. They didn't point out to
onscreen vs tactile, but the importance of tactile keyboards for
children is an important consideration.

Maybe keyboarding will go away altogether once we can speak to our
computers like Captain Picard does for his "Tea, Earl Grey, hot", but
we are not there yet.
