Whether it is assignment writing or constructing essays, we always find ourselves torn between the suitable strategies that make our lives easier. Another agenda in academic work is to type with a keyboard or to use touch and which method suits best. We have listed down some advantages and limitations for both in order to help the readers to decided between the two by weighing down the pros and cons of both and find out what is going to suit their assignment writing needs best and what will make the work smoother and easier.
Working on a Laptop or Desktop (Typing) allows a student to work in a flow. Once we have used our keyboards for a while, our hands tracks the keys and we type faster without having to look at the keyboard over and over again. A huge advantage of using keyboards over touch is, you can get yourself a wireless keyboard and work from any corner of the room, lie down far away from the screen or rest your back against the sofa or a pillow and type. You can even get a keyboard for tablet that works via Bluetooth.
Working on a Tablet (Touch) has its more perks. You get predictions on touch keyboards meaning that once you are fully used to of writing through touch, you can cut your work time in half. When the predictions are ‘on’ and you choose auto complete or correct as an option, formatting takes even lesser time which is a huge plus in the favor of ‘touch’.
Another huge benefit of using touch for assignment writing especially for long ones is that you can also go for the ‘swipe option’ where you swipe on the words without having to part your finger from the keyboard after stroking every word and you swipe across the keyboard to write the words. Once you have practiced enough, it can be fun and it will require less time than most methods and becomes quite addicting. So whether you use touch or type for assignment writing you will have to see what style suits you and what makes your work easier instead of what is new out there and know before splurging in something new.
