5 Benefits of Writing by Hand

The benefits of writing by hand has been a widely discussed topic. Whilst technology has greatly affected the way people interact and study, there is nothing like writing by hand that strengthens the learning process. The more that students write their notes, the more they will learn and retain new information. Here are 5 main benefits of writing by hand:

It’s better for learning Writing notes by hand is one of the most effective ways to study and retain new information.


It prevents you from being distracted Technology can be very distracting. The simplicity of pen on paper is a great way to keep you focused on the task at hand.
It keeps your brain sharp as you get older Writing actually uses more of your brain. The act of writing engages motor-skills, memory and is a good cognitive exercise.
It inspires creativity Taking a pen to paper is a slower process than typing on the keyboard, therefore inspires the creative process.
It improves memory For classroom learning, using your laptop would be quicker, but writing notes by hand actually helps you better remember the notes you take. Writing something by hand has a longer-lasting effect on memory.
So get that pen of yours to paper and get writing with a personalised notepad from Padtastic! :-D
