We all learned how to shape letters in different ways; with a pencil or crayon, or maybe by writing in the sand. However, basic handwriting must be understood and accomplished before graduating into the difficult skill of cursive handwriting. Professor Chris Dede relates that technologies can unobtrusively alter how we process information and express ourselves. (2012) Today, the computer is used more often than not, when communicating in a written form; as such it has changed the way in which people communicate, for better and worse.

This author assess the use of word processors as helpful tools, or hindrances in writing, and questions what these programs have affected, and how these effects are revealed by the users in connection to writing skills. By reviewing how writing skills are acquired, and how word processors are used, the author compares and contrasts ways in which those affects are exposed, and highlights instances of reliance that users have on word processors, and the tools found embedded in the programs.
