gorgeous hand writing is a kind of art
typing more efficient, no interruption on thought stream
With the advent of the typewriter, more and more text works has been done by Keyboard or even vocal input. Therefore, there is a claim that children nowadays need not to exert their great efforts in learning how to write.
At the first glare, this point of view has its own ground. Compared with handwriting, first of all, It is both efficient and fashionable to write something by typing with a keyboard orrelying on vocal interpretation-imagine the scenario in which a columnist is doing his or her writing with a laptop in the cafe. As well as that, modern input techniques can be regarded as terrific tools as it does not interrupt the writer's stream of thought if being very skillful in utilizing them.
However, it should be recognized that learning through writing has decided advantages. The greatest one is that handwriting facilitates knowledge acquisition, especially for the children. While they are taking notes by hand, this heavier and less efficient labor actually requires the coordination among their brains, hands and eyes, but the reward is a long lasting memory and better understanding. Pencraft, if any children would achieve, has a more profound importance as it could be regarded as a kind of art and even a cultural identity. This would help the children in the long run make money out of this and preserve this precious cultural heritage.
In conclusion, I almost disagree with the statement. This does not mean the typewriting is worse than pen and ink, but for the sake of education, this sort of training is very fundamental and no nation can afford the consequences.
