Penultimate vs Explain Everything – a child’s view

Penultimate vs Explain Everything
Today I asked children to do something in Penultimate (they have Writing notebooks, and I had asked them to start a Science notebook) Several children asked whether they could use Explain Everything instead. I said I had no objection except they needed to explain WHY they preferred this. If they could persuade me then they could use Explain Everything instead. What ensued was a short lively debate about the merits of both. Primary preference was the ability in EE to be able to type as well as handwrite. My less able children said they liked how they could record what they thought. I appreciated their evaluations so I gave children the choice.
However it is re-raising my concerns about handwriting.
