  1. If blue on white is so effective in teaching, how do they write here that why are textbooks issued with a black font, and not blue letters on a white background?

  2. The blue pen is more of a tradition. Red is the teacher's color, blue is the student's color, and black is used to fill out documents (school journals). Although, a few years ago, they tried to introduce an innovation: to replace the “traumatic child's psyche” red color of the pen with green. It didn't stick. Went back to red, because green is not clearly visible on a blue background. Doctors believe that the blue color of the pen is good for the child's eyes. And is an element of spelling mode.

  3. When I entered the 1st grade, for about six months, maybe a little less or more, we wrote only purple, and then the decree came out and everyone switched to blue.

    The catch is that psychologists say that this color is soothing and does not irritate a person's eyes, from a practical point of view, it creates a contrast and is easy to read on white paper. Although the inscription is easier to read with a black pen, but this color is official and business.

  4. At the moment, there is no such strict requirement. You can write with any contrasting pen – blue, black, or dark purple. The main requirement is contrast. It is not recommended (I emphasize that it is not recommended, but not forbidden) to use fluorescent pens with bright light colors – they are hard to read on white paper and you have to strain your eyesight, which is not useful. In general, colors other than those mentioned at the beginning of the post are used to highlight text fragments, while red is traditionally considered a teacher's color. Again, I would like to emphasize that there are no official bans at the moment. If they are banned somewhere, then this is an internal decision of a particular school or teacher. In principle, if this ban is passed through the school's governing council, then it is quite legal.

  5. Most likely in the composition of ink. From practice, I know that blue ink does not fade or does not fade much, while black ink fades to yellow. This does not apply to books whose paint is made of tar.

  6. You can write with either a blue pen or a black one, but you can never write with a red one (red is the teacher's color so that he can show you mistakes in your work). Personally, my school allows you to write with any pen (except red, of course). But high school students are well aware that writing in purple is not very good, because it is not clear what you wrote to them in a notebook, the other person is the same. That leaves two colors-black and blue.

  7. Imho, all this baida goes back to the time of writing with ink and pen. Then the black color of ink was used for documentation, and in order to distinguish the writing of an experienced berk from the writing of a student, a color difference was introduced. By the way, I got confused about the color of the paste during document processing. I found out that there are no strict restrictions, but it is RECOMMENDED to use blue, purple and black colors, because blueprints work better and they are more resistant to fading

  8. When I entered the university, I was glad that now I can write with a “black” pen. Half a year has passed, and it is time to prepare for the session. What was my surprise when after an hour of reading such notes, my eyes simply began to hurt and in general it was uncomfortable to read. After that session, I write my notes only with a “blue” pen, which is more pleasant to the eye, as for me.

  9. But when I was in school, at the beginning of the two thousandth, bright gel pens of different colors appeared. And purple and green and orange and pink. I remember notes on subjects such as geography and history, for example, we were allowed to write in any color, in these notebooks we did not limit our imagination. It was fun) But we used blue paste to write our final assignments, such as dictations and tests. And everyone was happy)

  10. You could write calmly and write in black. Only the bright ones were not recommended, because it is inconvenient to read. And so he wrote almost all of his 10th-11th grades with a black pen.

  11. Actually. It depends on the teacher, on his integrity. Eg : my aglebra teacher doesn't allow me to write in any color other than blue . My geographer doesn't care if it's red, as long as it's legible . And my literature teacher allows only blue and green tk green we note important facts and the green pen must be with us

  12. It's funny to read how everyone here praises pens with blue paste, says that it improves learning so much, and in our school, without exception, everyone writes only with black paste. For a blue pen homework assignment, you can get a swan or a note in your diary.

  13. There is such a thing as pedagogical design-a scientific discipline that develops the most effective, rational and comfortable ways, methods and systems of teaching that can be used in the field of professional pedagogical practice (the quote is taken from Wikipedia, if any). And according to this discipline, the most optimal combination for the perception of training materials (and everything that we write in the notebook in fact becomes them) is blue text on a white background. Black on white, by the way, ranks only fifth in efficiency, if my memory serves me correctly.

    That is, in principle, it is clear why it is necessary to write in blue. Another issue is that, as often happens, the content (blue on white – the most effective for perception) is replaced by the form (you must write with a blue pen).

  14. Because this is a tradition and no one sees the point in changing what works normally. ) But in our time, the pens themselves are becoming more interesting. For example, there are paper pens pens-wholesale RF/katalog/bumazhnye-ruchki and they can be easily taken in large batches.

  15. Red – strains the eye. Checking homework written with such a pen is unbearable.�

    I used to write more with a black pen at school, but for some reason the blue ones broke quickly and left me with a black one. There were no questions from the teachers.�

    A classmate wrote green, then red. It is not clear why, but he alternated them every line right up to the 8th grade. Teachers only complained about how inconvenient it was to check his work. But the request and even decrees to write normally did not help in any way – the boy realized himself in this way. Apparently nothing forbids writing in whatever color you want.�

    But it's better still blue or, if with blue handles as I'm not lucky, at least black. Just do not strain your eyes and do not cause irritation to the teacher (or even underestimate the grade, and will call you to the blackboard every day, and will give you more difficult tasks)

  16. We could also write something like black, but most of them wrote blue, for me the text blue is more beautiful to look at. At the same time, the shades were from blue to purple and no one found fault with this. Red was for the teacher, green for highlighting something.

  17. As far as I know, purple ink gets worn down over time to such an extent that it can no longer be read. This was discovered during a check of documentation in Ukraine(I don't know about Russia and other CIS countries), many of the entries were unreadable, so it was decided to switch to blue pens.
    Now, out of pure interest, I found my notebook from junior school(then they wrote in purple) and checked the readability of the inscriptions. You can make it out, but with a lot of effort.

  18. We always wrote with a black pen, ну well, at least until 2013. And in high school, we generally wrote what we wanted and how we wanted, it seems that there was freedom or not, I already forgot

  19. I've never given a damn about teachers ' bans. I liked black pasta then and still like it now. of course, there were a lot of arguments about this, but I didn't want to stop writing with black paste. and I don't want to now 🙂

    imho, it looks very nice black paste on white paper, and blue dirty and ugly. brr.

  20. No, this is not true, and no order can determine which pen to write to a person. When I entered the first grade, they also talked about the blue pen. But for as long as I can remember, I've always written and still write in black ink. So you can write in any color, well, respectively, except red.
