Why teach handwriting in the digital age?

To read the full article click on the Link above to Kip Lisburn’s original article – this is our response.  As kindles replace books, as ipads replace jotters in schools and our children learn to “text speak” on their mobile phones, I worry about the future of childrens’ literacy, grammar and handwriting. However the digital age should be embraced by teachers (it’s not going away). I wonder if in 10 years time teaching children the art of hand writing an actual letter may be part of the curriculum? I hope so.
