1. My wife would disagree with the statement that typing cause attention to oscillate between keyboard and monitor. As a touch typist she never looks at the keyboard only at the screen.
    Her handwriting is terrible though.

    • I touch-type with eyes on the screen (or written source I’m typing from). But I find that my attention moves forward when I type, rather than focusing on the words and sentence I’m working on, as with pencil/pen.

      I do probably type under the influence of too much coffee though. :)

    I recently read that cursive is no longer being taught in elementary schools. This is a shame. It’s an overall death of skeuomorphism, IMHO. I have my pens, pencils, and notepads — but I am a slave to my keyboard now, and sadly, my handwriting has gone to pot. :(
