A Handwriting Serious Game


In today’s developed countries, people mostly communicate via electronic means and the practice of physically writing on pen and paper is getting rare. In young children, the problem of not getting enough handwriting practice is even more severe. However, even in this era of electronic communication dominance, handwriting still serves as an important cornerstone of basic language literacy. Individuals with clear and legible handwriting skills have been shown to have significantly better literacy skills.

This project hence aims to evaluate a handwriting serious game that makes use of popular modern touch-based tablets to preserve traditional handwriting practice.
