Handwriting in school today : A study of teachers’ and pupils’ attitudes to handwriting and computer writing in literacy education (English)
Abstract [en]

The aim of this study is to investigate how teachers and primary school pupils view the use of handwriting in literacy tuition and what their thoughts are on the future of handwriting. In the study, handwriting is compared to today’s digital ways of writing. The study sets out from the Swedish curriculum (Lgr 11) and is based on interviews with teachers and pupils in grades 1–3. The results show that the pupils tend to see handwriting mainly from an individual perspective and that they consider it to be important knowledge in adult and professional life. The teachers in the study view handwriting from a pedagogical perspective and focus mainly on its role in literacy tuition. In contrast to the pupils involved in the study, the teacher are uncertain regarding the future of handwriting.
