The Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad asked me to comment on the news that Finnish children are not obliged to learn handwriting at school any more. You can read the article including my opinion here. The article was also published by another newspaper, Nieuwsblad van het Noorden, the next day. In addition, BNR news radio wanted to discuss this topic in their science news program (listen back here). In case you’re interested to read more about the effects of handwriting vs. typing on reading skills, you can read the article that I wrote for Kennisnet.
