PLN 13

I disagree with the article “Keyboard vs. Pen” by C. O'Donnell. I write better and faster on a computer, not with a pen. Plus my handwriting is close to horrible, so some people can’t even read what I write out. My hands hurt after writing for even a fairly short time, but when I type only my wrists hurt only if I leave them in one position for an hour or two. This is what matters to me in “Keyboard vs. Pen” by C. O'Donnell.


  1. Hey Ryan. That's true, using a computer is obviously very neat and tidy. In your opinion, which do you think is better to use when trying express your thoughts? A pen or a keyboard?

  2. Hi, I'm one of your mentors, Danielle. Writing can hurt your hands and wrist, but what happens when you must write an essay on an exam. Most of the time you're not allowed to use computers to write an exam unless it is for an online course. There are always pros and cons for both sides of the argument. What we have to decide, is which pros outweigh which cons? In other words, which is the better end result for a student?
