The digital revolution has profoundly changed our lives and this dramatic impact needs to be reflected in education. Handwriting is increasingly being replaced by typing, and digital literacy related problems are on the rise: illegible, slow handwriting, reading difficulties, lack of understanding of typography and a shortage of teachers trained in handwriting. Scientific evidence shows that our senses are connected. This phenomenon is called multi-sensory integration. When we handwrite, the images of letters created in the brain are formed by sight as well as touch or proprioception. Handwriting, typing and reading are deeply related skills. Drawing fascinating parallels between Latin, Arabic and Chinese scripts, Christian le Comte presents a new paradigm to approach handwriting education: a bridge between reading and typography.
