According to the British newspaper, 61% of the teachers believe that over the past five years, the quality of the students’ handwriting has decreased, and 64% of the teachers admitted that problematic handwriting causes them to give students a lower grade than what they might actually deserve.
The Genius Notebook was developed and designed to enable all types of students a maximal level of focus and ease in writing. One of the biggest challenges that students face at the beginning of their handwriting development is difficulty becoming oriented with the line for writing.
Our children’s learning challenges are dramatically different than the challenges faced by students in the past. Therefore, it is necessary to develop tools that will enable students to write with greater ease and not strain their brains unnecessarily. In CT scans of a child with an attention deficit disorder, it is easy to see how much effort is put into such a simple task as “focusing on the line for writing.” It is important to understand that over 50% of children in the information age have difficulty focusing on the line for writing, and it is even harder for them to understand where they are supposed to write – something that seems clear to any average parent.
Regular notebooks have various different lines and there is no clear distinction between the lines for spacing and the lines for writing, which makes things very hard for the beginning student trying to understand where to write. In the keyboard age, distractions are everywhere, and every small thing in the student’s workspace is liable to catch his attention easily.
Among students with attention deficit disorders, the situation is even worse, because the background of the notebook and many lines prevent them from effectively focusing on the line for writing. Since their brain is busy deciphering the lines, these students have a very hard time writing in their notebooks or summarizing the teacher’s explanations.
