A. Lot of elementary school students don’t even learn cursive writing as it’s not really needed in this digital age. Bonnie

My mother’s friend, John Bardeen, is partly to “blame”. He received his first Nobel prize in physics for his work on the transistor… He is the only person to ever receive two Nobel prizes in physics! He was a great friend and neighbor according to her.

And so we’ve gotten softer, in our bodies, our minds, our brains and our realtionship. NOTHING is better than a hand written letter. It puts a part of you into someone’s hands and heart. The loss of cursive handwriting has eliminated the evidence of personality. I could go one, but what’s the use? I’m now a stranger in a foreign land.

I never bought or sold a car on the street. I used want ads for both.

Raymond Cardona, I think it's still needed. They still should know how to read it. I personally write every day and only print when it's required. Printing out something by hand is a hassle in my opinion.

Raymond Cardona, You retain more if you take notes by hand than when you use a keyboard . If you learn cursive this is easier than printing. There is not enough support at school for the practice for it to continue but families who insist at home do give their kids an advantage. Digital fluency encourages cut and paste plagiarism and only tertiary institutions can afford adequate software to detect this. All technological advances involve negatives as well as positives. Nothing new! I cant grip a pen for long so I love the keyboard. To internalise info I do a lot of oral work now in place of writing .

I still write letters & use my address book, lots of old people are not on the internet. Also I still get photos printed for albums, It’s so nice to look through them for the memories.

A couple of those things still happen. I still have an address book. And I have still seen cars sold on streets. I think it would be kind of fun, if a person has time to get out and get a last minute present. Some technology is good and some not. Still, making this busy life a lot simpler isn't too bad.

My mom, who was a career teacher, used to write me lengthy letters and always correct my grammar and spellings in my responses (she lived in another country). These are some of the things I miss about her.

I have a letter written to his daughters over 100years ago. He was a Captain of a ship in the merchant navy. He wrote it all in verse, talking about the crew going to Peru to collect coal and how board they all got on the long, long journey stuck on the ship.
