Handwriting as we all know has been used for thousands of years for communication, but is it really necessary in this modern age with computer, tablets and smartphone.
Sure people say that its more formal to use hand writing but soon enough, like allot of jobs nowadays, you fill out an application online instead of writing up a letter. Emails are allot more delivered, they are delivered instantly and you can have a reply within 5 minutes or less. If we dropped all forms of hand writing and used computers to type out documents, what would be BAD from it? I dont see any reason to continue handwriting anymore, its not eco friendly, its using up resources that we could use for other things.
Exams at school will also be easier to mark, instead of having to go through, collect, then try to make out poor hand writing for some people, you could simply type up the exams, of course using a special word processing program for it, and then once you finished, simply submit it, and not have to wait around for someone to come and collect it.
Myself, i got muscle damage from handwriting. I had a funny position to hold my pen and over years of it it damaged the muscles in my hand so i can no longer grasp a pen and write without pain. I type everything on my tablet at school now, my marks have improved by allot due to teachers being able to read my writing.
So what do you think? Should handwriting be dropped completely or is there still a good reason to use it?
