Title

Handwriting or Typewriting - which is better for learning?

Summary

Children today spend more time writing with computers than by hand - are they missing out? Exploration of the physical and mental differences between the two methods of writing. Handwriting is better for creativity, exploration of new ideas and learning. Typing is good for speed and accuracy. The key difference is engaging multiple parts of the brain, which you can also do with learning apps which stimulate more of the brain and sensory system.
