Who needs handwriting when everything can be typed, and speech can be turned into text with a few clicks? Some may say that handwriting is outdated, and that modern software allows us to make notes and distribute them faster.
However, writing by hand is still essential. First, it helps us focus on the content of our words and leave our distractions behind. When we brainstorm new ideas or write a college essay using only pen and paper, we are free from digital noise and don’t spend unnecessary attention on formatting.
Second, handwriting gives us more freedom to highlight and make notes, while software has certain limitations on where you can add notes and how you can arrange your text.
There are many more reasons why handwriting is useful for you and your learning process. Check out the infographic below to learn 20 ways why writing is right for you.
