Handwriting Robots: Should it be allowed for students?

“Handwriting Robot” Completes Homework Faster

Handwriting Robots: Should it be allowed for students?

The story of a young student who used a so-called “handwriting robot” to complete her Lunar New Year holiday homework in record time made news headlines in China last week, sparking a heated debate.

The young student had spent an equivalent of $118 to acquire this device that could imitate any handwriting. We are in a robotic and artificial intelligence era and using robots helps to simply things.

Should the use of these gadgets be allowed in solving issues of us? The young girl’s mother had suspected something and destroyed the device when she found it.

In Nigeria, children are still made to copy texts from books unto their notes which is cumbersome. Back in the days, even when calculators were available, students sitting for Secondary school final examinations were subjected to the use of 4-figure tables to do calculations.

When calculators were finally allowed for use in Senior Secondary School Certificate Examinations (SSCE), University Matriculation Examination (formerly JAMB) took some years before it was allowed.

In some secondary schools, teachers are made to prepare their lesson notes through manual writing. Typed notes are not encouraged. A gadget like this will make it easy for both teachers and students but there should be a limit to the usage as it may make students become over dependent on the device.

It can also lead to complacency as even the smallest writings such as letters will be difficult for students to write.

Gadgets are meant for ease but in Nigeria do you think it will be turned into something else?
