quill-pixabayIt appears that science is now confirming what penmanship proponents have long thought – handwriting can make you smarter!

Researchers at Princeton University and UCLA have discovered that “handwriting appears to focus classroom attention and boost learning in a way that typing notes on a keyboard does not.”  Although those taking notes on their laptops recorded more words, the process became rote while those taking handwritten notes “appeared to think more intensely about the material as they wrote, and digested what they heard more thoroughly.”

(Thanks, as always, to John Riley of Gabriel Books for providing ATG Quirkies!)
