Why the Smart Reading Device of the Future May Be … Paper | Science | WIRED

Why the Smart Reading Device of the Future May Be … Paper | Science | WIRED | Adult Reading and Writing Apps | Scoop.it
Why do traditional paper books remain so popular, especially for deep, immersive reading? Are some people simply too stubborn and nostalgic to adapt to new technologies?
David Rosen's insight:

How does the research mentioned in this article resonate with your own -- or your students' -- experiences? Do you choose hard copy for deep reading because it isn't distracting, or because you like the feel of a page? Do you prefer to read science fiction and mysteries on screen? What does it mean if students prefer textbooks in print, and if research shows some evidence that students learn better when reading on paper, but publishers and schools are making textbooks available primarily online? Will students retain less?
