Handwriting vs. Keyboarding

Has Your Handwriting Suffered Because of Tech?

How long has it been since you picked up a pencil? It seems that in this day and age, people are using a keyboard more than a notepad, and their penmanship may be suffering for it. But more than just legible notetaking, handwriting could help you get smart. A recent article in The Wall Street Journal explains how handwriting can help you learn shapes, objects, even foreign languages far beyond your toddler years.

I'll be honest — I barely write with a pen and paper anymore. My life is totally online, and using a keyboard is more comfortable to me now than holding a pen. Of course, it's romantic to think about sending handwritten notes and love letters to your significant other, but I'm more apt to send a heartfelt love email instead, since my penmanship has definitely taken a turn for the worse. Tell me — has your handwriting suffered because of tech, too?
