Is it still important for children to learn how to write (as opposed to type on the computer) and why?
If children are and will be using computers in the future, and can type faster than they can write – is there still a benefit to learning how to write?
What about learning how to write in a second language?
What about children with dyslexia and/or other learning disabilities who find it easier to type – should they be encouraged or even forced to learn how to write?
