From BPS Research Digest:

The findings also showed that giving the children the opportunity to draw, significantly increased the amount of accurate information they recalled. This is consistent with previous, forensically motivated research showing that drawing facilitates children's verbal reports of their experiences.

Modern personal computers, are very unfriendly to people, including children, who like to draw. The keyboard-and-mouse interface prevents users from developing their natural ability to describe the world as they see it. When children transition from a piece of paper to a PC/Mac screen they immediately lose a large chunk of their creative power. Fortunately, mobile phones with touch interface provide a much better platform for helping them to recover this magic of natural drawing.
