Typing was a term designed to describe striking the keys on a typewriter to make them print on a piece of paper. We still use the same term even though children think typewriters are simply old computers. The same QWERTY keyboard layout is used for most computer keyboards. There has been some attempt to substitute the work keyboarding for the word typing, to align more closely with the device being used, but this has not displaced the use of the word typing.
