In this source Maria Konnikova discusses how typing destroys children’s ability to learn. She writes that when children’s learn to write by hand it activates 3 part of our brain that is crucial in child’s development. Children are able to learn quickly, generate ideas, and better retain information. Isn’t why we read and write to study in first place. She also points out that it is harmful for older people too. We’ve moved to digital world but i don’t think children should start using computers at very young age. This can be useful for my research paper because i’m writing on how blogging, twits and facebook posts have destroyed shattered people’s mind to write big papers and forgot about their vocabulary skills.
