I have an interesting reverse take on the situation. I asked my community college students to write proposals about what kind of senior programs our college should offer (the assignment was to learn about proposal writing, not senior programs). Anyway, one of my freshman students suggested we have email classes for the seniors. Her reason, however, was the interesting part. It wasn't because they could write their grandkids (the usual lifelong learning spin), it was so they could write each other. She assumed seniors also had a hard time reading handwriting. Again, not because they had bad eyes, just because she thought reading handwriting was difficult. I had to chuckle. It's been my experience that the older you are, the better your penmanship. My 88 year old aunt can write beautifully, even with arthritis.
