Just because keyboarding is faster doesn’t mean it’s better. Yes, students with dyslexia and other learning issues may be able to write more easily on a computer than by hand. But that doesn’t mean we should abandon handwriting.

My view: Let’s give our kids every opportunity to thrive as readers and writers. They can use screens and devices and all sorts of technology. But let’s also keep pens and pencils handy. Doing the slow, often difficult work of practicing handwriting can help kids become better readers and writers.
