ABSTRACT

Today’s generation is called the digital generation, because they grows surrounded by a variety of technologies and  we cannot imagine everyday life without it. In this context, one question arises—What extent does today’s young generation use handwriting? If we look into the past, literacy—the art of reading, writing, and counting was one of the factors indicating a society progress. Written records, chronicles, and communication in society were related to the use of handwriting. How is it today? The calligraphy is not taught in schools long ago in spite of the fact that handwriting is one of the basic characteristics of each person. Handwriting is the result of very complex psychological and physiological processes that gradually shape the individual character of the person. Of course, there is spelling that is characterized by knowledge of a grammar system rules and norms when expressing the content of the text. Further in this paper, we will focus on two aspects of using handwriting knowledge: 1. Exploring handwriting as one of the methods used by criminology to identify the writer, i.e., the person who created the text; and 2. Handwriting from the point of view of physics and technology. The use and importance of handwriting was discussed with high school learners. The outcome of the discussion is summarized in this paper—the necessary knowledge about handwriting in criminology and science.
