There are many benefits of learning to write at Casvi Villaviciosa that go beyond the purely linguistic objectives. All writing is based on codes with patterns and strokes that, by combining them, allow the creation of letters. A learning process that cannot be independent of reading. For this reason, adequate stimulation during the first years of life, in the form of play, awakens in the child interests and concerns that will be crucial for later learning at all stages of the Eurocolegio Casvi International Private School (PYP, MYP and DP of the International Baccalaureate).

What are, therefore, the benefits of learning to write in Casvi Villaviciosa? Why does the use of new technologies intervene in such a positive way?

Benefits of learning to write in Casvi Villaviciosa

Learning is a complicated process in which many factors come into play. Of course, each child has their own process and techniques that tend to work for them. However, science shows that there are various means that help to enhance the acquisition of knowledge. For example, the study presented by the University of Arizona in collaboration with the University of Utah.

This work presents a hypothesis that learning to write has benefits in different areas. “Writing to learn” is one of the theories defended in this work and helps to develop children’s abilities, just like talking and sharing ideas with friends.

But learning to write, according to Ana de la Calle, coordinator of Pre-School Education at Eurocolegio Casvi International Private School, has many more benefits for our students.

  • The development of different skills closely related to the methodology that is put into practice in all the following stages at Casvi Villaviciosa through the IB programmes (PYP, MYP and DP):

    • -Research and thinking skills as it allows to analyse, organise and evaluate ideas and concepts.
    • -Also self-management skills (to control and be responsible for something he/she has developed himself/herself).
    • -It also establishes a very direct link with the world around us, facilitating communication skills and linguistic expression.
    • Improving attention and memory.
    • The development of creativity.
    • Learning to write is also fundamental for other types of development: psychomotor development, hand-eye coordination and muscle tone.
    • It facilitates comprehension.
    • And finally, it speeds up the acquisition of other languages.

    Using New Technology to learn to write

    For Ana de la Calle, coordinator of Pre-School Education in Casvi Villaviciosa, technology is a very important resource to facilitate the learning method and the acquisition process in our students. Digital whiteboard, applications on a device… All of this allows us to practice directionality and coordination when learning to write.

    There is, however, a separate issue. What it does not facilitate is the improvement of muscle tone. That is why at Casvi Villaviciosa it is still essential to combine technological tools with the use of brushes, pens, pencils, paints and felt-tip pens. All of these materials are irreplaceable and very necessary for stringing and developing the pincer.
