Newspaper Article

The West Australian Newspaper today had a story about the lost art of handwriting.  There have been a number of articles on this topic in that paper, including one that raised concern about 6 year olds using iPads at school and never learning the techniques necessary for good handwriting.

The above article raised the issue of students spending little time doing handwriting, and then having to write exam or test papers by hand - they find it extremely difficult to write for long periods - the time it will take to do the tests.
