Does Losing Handwriting In School Mean Losing Other Skills Too?

Does Losing Handwriting In School Mean Losing Other Skills Too? | Sci-fi | Scoop.it
Learning to write by hand has learning benefits that could be neglected if too much focus is put on keyboarding.

This is an ongoing discussion between my English Teacher friend and I.  I think the real question is why are we still teaching keyboarding??

Allan Shaw's curator insight, June 13, 2014 1:21 AM

It is becoming clearer that it is important that we do not lose  handwriting as a skill! Strong positive neural development in a child is far more important than adeptness in using digital technologies. If research continues to support these initial studies many educators will need to reflect and possibly readjust.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, June 16, 2014 2:57 PM

New evidence suggests that the links between handwriting and broader educational development run deep. Children not only learn to read more quickly when they first learn to write by hand, but they also remain better able to generate ideas and retain information. In other words, it’s not just what we write that matters — but how.

Machines v. Lawyers by John O. McGinnis, City Journal Spring 2014

Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s curator insight, June 3, 2014 9:36 AM

The growing role of machine intelligence will create new competition in the legal profession and reduce the incomes of many lawyers. The job category that the Bureau of Labor Statistics calls “other legal services”—which includes the use of technology to help perform legal tasks—has already been surging, over 7 percent per year from 1999 to 2010. As a consequence, the law-school crisis will deepen, forcing some schools to close and others to reduce tuitions. While lawyers and law professors may mourn the loss of more lucrative professional opportunities, consumers of modest means will enjoy access to previously cost-prohibitive services.

Google’s Public Alerts now display tweets in times of crisis

Google’s Public Alerts now display tweets in times of crisis | Sci-fi | Scoop.it

Google’s Crisis Response tool is designed to make “critical information more accessible in times of disaster”, and has been used in the past for hurricanes and floods. Now, Google hasannounced it will also display relevant tweets on a special subset of Public Alerts, which serve to warn users in specific locales of an impending disaster, hitherto via official sources.


Starting from June 3, Google says that Public Alerts have started including tweets for some of the more “extreme Public Alerts”, with a view towards answering questions, such as whether schools are closing. It will also reveal what people are seeing on the ground – eyewitness accounts, in other words.
