Technology introduced too soon harming writing skills?

Today, computers and other forms of technology are introduced at a very young age. There are many toddlers that seem to know how to work a cell phone or computer. Is introducing this technology so soon in children's lives harming their writing skills? Will using keyboards to type out information make it difficult for students to learn necessary writing skills for their future?

I have to agree with you there. I think it is already happening because when teaching Year 8 students English the art of writing appears to be treated as an isolated subject rather than something that is an integral part of our daily lives.
