The Fading Art of Handwriting: The Choice Between Computer Typing and Handwriting

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

    Abstract

    Data show that, across the world, the ubiquity of technology impacts on the capacity of many children and adults to handwrite or even decipher their own handwriting. But this short note is also referring to the current trend of (and debate over) the demise of cursive handwriting. Considered by many as an obsolete reminiscence of the past in the age of technology and computers, cursive writing is left out of school curriculum in different countries in the world.
