THIS IS COOL. I WANT TO LEARN SOMETHING ELSE, TOO!

  1. I think handwriting… Not sure of my theory but i believe it connects straight to your brain. If there is any corrections you know when reading through but typing, if it’s on a laptop or computer auto correct and a typewriter, I don’t know.

  2. In theory l do actually agree with that, but l have a mind to eye to hand coordination problem meaning my writing is worse than probably your own Doctors, so when l jot down to paper it ceases to exist which frustrates the hell out of me if honest, so l tend to type.

  3. both, one for theorem and concepts. the other for finalizing papers, publications and website functions. for me anyway, the two must collerate and collaberate for the student ” a damn good student”.

  4. Thanks for sharing this. As the new semester starts I’ve been considering giving my students a better reason for my “no electronic devices” rule. (Not that “they distract your classmates” isn’t a good enough reason!) Perhaps I’ll have them check out this video.

  5. For me it’s most definitely handwriting. I can’t remember anything I’ve typed out before, but the things I write down are so much easier to recall! I guess that’s why I still love snail mail.

  6. Related to longer fiction, I have to do both, ordinarily first by hand, everything else by keystroke. Invariably a first draft by hand is more intense than one I bang out on the keys. Blogs i can draft either way.
