According to the article published by CNN, “a 2012 study found that 33% of people had difficulty reading their own handwriting.” The truth is that even those of us who grew up without laptops in the classroom, those of us who had cursive lessons, have forgotten how to write properly due to the overabundance of technology. Is this necessarily a bad thing though? Certainly there are times when we are required to hand write various notes but isn’t it more important that those notes are widely available and legible?

What are your thoughts on technology’s impact on handwriting these days?
