Handwriting is still taught in the elementary schools in my country and I think it a good thing that the subject is still taught in schools which still helps to improve the writing skills of the pupils and students.
No matter how much we use the phone and computer to type,we still use more of your hands to scribble words.The children at school still write the notes into their exercise books with their hands,all class and home work are hand written,exams are hand written and even some things that needs to be written outside the school need to be hand written.So you see hand written things are more than the computerised ones and moreover most schools over here aren't computerised and as such everything is done manually.

So with all these it is pertinent that a child should be taught how to write properly.

In my candid opinion our children should be taught a good handwriting and not only that but also with basic and intellectual English.
My reasons for making such position are very simple; many of those who actually schooled in th9se days you mentioned which we assumed to be primitive age were the real educated people.
Though the computer age has made thing easy and less complex this however has lessing the value in education since what we refer to as discipline is not longer in existence.

Also, if a child sit in the class to write or take not with iPad or other gadgets and he/she equally did write exams through same means. What happens when he or she gets employed by an organization where writing is required?. I believe in such situation such a child will find it tough and people around will such a person as unserious.

Though, I don't overul the essence of the development and improvement in the standard of Education. Rather i want both to corroborate and taught together for a sound product.

No matter how we look at the invent of smart phones and laptops all over the place, there is always need for us to do the things that is right and that involves teaching the kids to have a good hand writing. Right here in Africa, kids that are still in primary school and even up to the University level still make use of the pen and paper when they are in school and such kids should it be that they have not been taught the need to practice good handwriting may end up not doing the right thing on that.

Also, you always have to leave a written note when you are going to one function or the other and this is one of the ways that they can check how good that you are when you are writing with pen and paper. Supposedly that you are someone that doesn't care anymore how good your handwriting is, then this is going to bring a lot of issues to your personality.

So, I think there is need to have improved handwriting as there is always a likely hood to make use of it in the future.
