That is the title of a story that appeared in the NY Times last week.
Here is a link to the full story. The focus of the article is the shift due to technology from handwriting to keyboard strokes and how it may impact educational development in a negative manner. There may actually be great value in using old fashioned pen and paper.
Being left handed, I always had difficulty with penmanship, which was not infrequently pointed out by the many nuns I had throughout grammar school. I somehow over the years lost the ability to write cursively. I can scribble a few words together, and I can easily read cursive writing, but I just can't write cursively. I always print or when taking notes during college, use my own version of short hand. The thing is that I learned to write cursively, albeit not very well, but once I left grade school, no one forced me to write that way. So I didn't. I still had to write things down though and did not have a tablet or keyboard like mnay have today.
Now days it would seem that kids are not required to write much of anything and cursive writing is getting less and less classroom time. The conclusion of the NY Time article is that writing things down perhaps makes you think better. It's certainly worthy of more investigation and study.
