Is handwriting still important? The digital generation skips penmanship

  • As interactive technology becomes ubiquitous around the globe, some experts warn that formal handwriting may soon diminish, rendering the penmanship a relic of the past. Fears of handwriting’s demise prompted North Carolina Congresswoman Pat Hurley to draft a bill, mandating that script be taught in all elementary schools in the state. It passed unanimously in the state House earlier this month. But Jeffrey Reaser, associate professor of linguistics at North Carolina State University, says a sense of “nostalgia” is not enough reason to force students to learn something that’s “not crucial to their education”.

  1. Yes, I do believe handwriting is more important, as interactive learning cannot effectively teach you everything.
