Common Core and Educational Technology: Keyboarding tools on the web to support CC stds!: 'via Blog this'

Keyboarding is specifically referenced (often) in the CC standards. Here are a few standards where it's called out:

W.3.6. With guidance and support from adults, use technology to produce and publish writing (using keyboarding skills) as well as to interact and collaborate with others. 

W.6.6. Use technology, including the Internet, to produce and publish writing as well as to interact and collaborate with others; demonstrate sufficient command of keyboarding skills to type a minimum of three pages in a single sitting. W.4.6. W.5.6. are similar - one page (4th) , and two pages (5th) in a single sitting.

This website gives a list of keyboarding practice sites to try.
