The computer saves a lot of space though. Ctrl + F is also easier when you want to change a word/sentence/paragraph than manually searching for it.
And I guess for us lefties, computer is better, we won 8767 t get the whole underside of our hand smeared with the gray pigment from a pencil. But I solve that by writing with a pen instead of a pencil!
I 8767 m a pathetically perpetual dinosaur. I love technology, but hold to older habits for the most part. I journal and blog, and have found that one feeds the other for me, and I STILL love my pen and paper most. 😉 C.
Really, the only time I use pen/paper is for my school assignments and when I 8767 m bored. I end up doing more doodling and crossing-out than I do actual writing.
Technology will also never replace the need to be literate. Students will always need to be able to read and write. And it's essential that they are able to do both incredibly well.
I struggle too. I get tongue-tied and run out of things to say. I repeat myself and I forget words that I know I've used in the past. I sometimes change my mind halfway through a page, or even two, and want to start over with a new topic. Writing isn't always so easy!
Maybe because I don't know how to be anything but an open book, I have ended up very interesting assortment of kids who turn most dilemmas into songs just like their teacher.
I would love to see more math teachers understand the idea of allowing students to see them struggle. Sadly, too many have been teaching the same thing the same way for so long that they can work problems with their students (or should I say FOR their students) with no effort at all. I think this only perpetuates the sentiment that math is an elite subject for the gifted few and that it's ok to publicly declare "I'm not good at math" and never try to struggle through it. Our children see the teachers as experts and assume we have all the answers. I enjoy making mistakes on purpose with my students to encourage them to catch and help me fix my errors. They need to see more of us struggling with our subjects for it is only through our struggles/failures that we learn.
No blank checks: don’t sign a check until after you’ve filled in the name of the payee and the amount. If you’re not sure who to make the check payable or how much something costs, just bring a pen – it’s much less risky than giving somebody unlimited access to your checking account.
I used to write everything by hand, but I 8767 ve started typing my writing pieces now.
I use paper to plan the chapter/story, or just write a little idea and maybe expand on it, but generally any actual writing is on the computer.
I find it makes me more creative actually, my writing style is greatly improved when typing since it allows me to get more thoughts out quicker than on paper.
Does your notebook have jewels and sequins embroidered on a turquoise/green/aqua fabric cover and a beautiful satin ribbon to encircle it? Mine does it makes me very happy, sigh!
