We are now used to communicating by typing our messages on the keyboards of the PC and smartphone and consequently we write by hand less and less. We should rediscover this good habit, which can become a real art, as well as being beneficial for health.

Children and teens still have the opportunity to handwriting since they attend school. In the opinion of the experts ofIndiana University It is good that computers have not yet completely replaced traditional learning and teaching means and methods.

In fact, handwriting has gods advantages for both adults and children. Handwriting encourages brain activity, hones fine motor skills, and can contribute to children's and students' academic success.

For example, it is well known that take notes by hand during the lessons it helps to memorize better as well as to realize by oneself on paper the diagrams to study.

According to Karin Harman James, an expert at Indiana University's Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, handwriting is very important and typing on the keyboard doesn't have the same beneficial effects.

In particular, handwriting in children can contribute to brain development. In addition, the researchers observed that children are much quicker to write a theme when using the pen than the keyboard, and in this way they also get better results.

When handwriting is tidy, it also happens that the task is appreciated even more by teachers and therefore you get some higher grades. A study interesting in this regard is entitled "The effects of handwriting experience on functional brain development in pre-literate children" and was published in the scientific journal Trends in Neuroscience and Education.



Finally, the handwriting it involves many more brain circuits than typing on a keyboard. New messages arrive to the brain already starting from the contact and pressure of the pen on the paper and from the first movements necessary to start writing. We also remember that science has already confirmed that writing is the way to happiness and that handwriting makes you smarter.
