    http://www.globalchange.com Handwriting in examinations is a stupid way to assess student knowledge in world which will continue to require keyboard skills. New style education needs to focus on how to find immediate answers to complex problems from a starting point of ignorance, using new technology. How education promotes useless skills and neglects primary requirements eg instant summary of state of knowledge, fine to draw heavily on existing material. But in education such a summary could be rejected as plagiarism.
