On WRITING . . .

 “Memory: The act of handwriting helps students
(and adults) retain information more effectively than
when keyboarding, mostly likely because handwriting
involves more complex motor functions and takes a
bit longer.6  One study comparing students who took
notes by hand versus classmates who took notes by
computer found that the handwriters exhibited better
comprehension of the content and were more attentive
and involved during the class discussions.”7
