Should computers replace pen and paper?
Kia ora my name is Kartell. And I strongly believe that computers should not replace pen and paper
Should computers replace pen and paper? I don't think computers should replace pen and paper because pen and paper is helping us with our writing skills. Owning computers is not always fair. I don’t think it is fair when some children have computer and some don't. Just because they can’t afford them.
Some people say typing skills are now more relevant than handwriting but experts claim the move could damage a child's brain development. a recent study from Indiana University, researchers conducted brain scans on five-year-olds before and after receiving different letter and learning tasks.
children who practiced writing letters by hand, the neural activity was more enhanced and 'than in those who had simply looked at letters. And, the brain’s so-called 'reading circuit' - a region of linked connections that become active when reading - was activated during handwriting, but not during typing
Has the use of pen and paper had its day?. I don’t think it has. There was a time when I was little in Mrs Cameron’s class. We used to fill our books up with words. Everyday we wrote words and more words until finally we were writing stories. We were actual author's, pen and paper is powerful when you are learning to write.
I now work on a chromebook for most of the day. I have improved my typing skills and learned a lot about typing. The thing that happened was that I had changed my writing medium from pen and paper to the computer. It was hard at first but then I got used to it. I have noticed though, that my writing is not as tidy as it once was. How can this be a good thing. Surely I need more practice writing.
In conclusion, computers may be a popular way to communicate in this day and age, but they are not available for everybody, they fail to provide the same brain stimulation as actual writing and for these reasons nothing will ever replace the pen and paper.
