New is reducing children's to use a pencil. Researchers from the UK's service said that children spend so much swiping iPads or mobile phone screens that they cannot hold a pencil . This means their hands do not have the strength to be able to write properly. Researcher Dr Sally Payne said: "Children are not coming into school with the hand ...they had 10 years ago. Children coming into school are being given a pencil but are not able to hold it they don't have the...."
Technology is changing the that children write, draw or make . Children are now using technology to create. Dr Payne explained that: "It's to give a child an iPad than encourage them to do muscle-building such as building , cutting and sticking, or pulling toys and [so] they're not developing the...skills they need to grip and hold a pencil." Some say technology is causing bigger problems. One expert said if a child isn't strong to hold a pencil, perhaps their whole is weak. She said children needed to climb instead.
