Did you know that the Common Core standards do not require students to learn to write in cursive, but they do require that students become proficient at keyboarding? Recent research is showing that it is important for students to write in cursive. Why?

Quoting from the article:

“When we write, a unique neural circuit is automatically activated,” said Stanislas Dehaene, a psychologist at the Collège de France in Paris. “There is a core recognition of the gesture in the written word, a sort of recognition by mental simulation in your brain.

There are some states that are still requiring cursive. One wonders if this new research will lead to a shift in Common Core standards.

I am so happy to see this article. Both keyboarding and handwriting are essential skills. One cannot replace the other. There are critical connections that happen in the handwriting process (as shown in Beth's comment). These connections help with not only spelling but the flow of writing.

"Compared with how academic research was carried out in the pre-internet era, It seems like technology is really a godsend gift to researchers. From easy and unlimited access to journal articles to web tools that do the referencing and auto-syncing, everything has been digitized making it way easier for todays researchers to add to the body of the human knowledge than any time in history."
