Do you think the ability of writing becomes less important ? Today, is a information age.  we often use computer , smart phone or other electronic  products to write articles , do homework , chat with other , etc. So, the times people use their pen to write decrease, maybe for some people what time they should to write is to sign their names. What do you think about this situation, is the ability of writing  less important?

I think it is not unlikely that handwriting will disappear.

Still I think it would not be wise as kids learn so much more by doing their handwriting-practise: Coordination of hand-movement and discipline for example. I also remember that as a child I wrote a word both ways, when I was unsure about the spelling, and by "the look" of the word knew, which one was right. I don't think that will work with typed writing. Of course you have auto-correction - but that is no knowledge. One example: I did my Spanish exercise yesterday in my textbook - then copied it into the Italki notebook for correction. About 50% of my mistakes were simply because of copying. I did not see the mistakes but read over them.

But even worse I can imaging that writing in total will become obsolete, that you only talk to the computer in the future....

I think handwriting is becoming an art action , just like WuShu.  we don't call WuShu a military skill today but a martial art.

At least the Finnish people seem to think so. They don't teach handwriting anymore at school: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jul/31/finnish-schools-phase-out-handwriting-classes-keyboard-skills-finland
