7 Reasons Writing Is So Good for Our Brains

7 Reasons Writing Is So Good for Our Brains | Cibereducação | Scoop.it
Through our technology dependence, from smartphones to laptops, we seem to have a keyboard attached to our fingertips at all times. Have you thought about the last time you wrote something by hand? Research shows that our brains benefit from handwriting in multiple ways.

I talked with Dr. Marc Seifer, a graphologist, expert in handwriting, and the author of The Definitive Book of Handwriting Analysis (published in 2008). According to Seifer, the following are the main ways in which handwriting helps our brains.

The benefits of handwriting have become clear after brain research and brain imaging has shown that handwriting is also brain training. -Lon

As a new school year begins, many children will be returning to classrooms filled with brand new computers, tablets and other tools essential to prep students for life in a plugged-in world. But as schools go high-tech, the move may spell the end for cursive writing. 

The Common Core State Standards, a set of national benchmarks for American public schools, do not require students to learn cursive. Only 11 of the 50 states have amended their education requirements to mandate cursive be included in the curriculum. As a result, states and districts nationwide are grappling with whether to teach the skill at all.
