The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens: Scientific American

The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens: Scientific American | Digital Imaging - Telling the Story | Scoop.it

By Ferris Jabr

 

"How exactly does the technology we use to read change the way we read? How reading on screens differs from reading on paper is relevant not just to the youngest among us, but to just about everyone who reads—to anyone who routinely switches between working long hours in front of a computer at the office and leisurely reading paper magazines and books at home; to people who have embraced e-readers for their convenience and portability, but admit that for some reason they still prefer reading on paper; and to those who have already vowed to forgo tree pulp entirely. As digital texts and technologies become more prevalent, we gain new and more mobile ways of reading—but are we still reading as attentively and thoroughly? How do our brains respond differently to onscreen text than to words on paper? Should we be worried about dividing our attention between pixels and ink or is the validity of such concerns paper-thin?"


Via Jim Lerman
Gordon Shupe's insight:

I will admit it, I have yet to read an entire novel or non-fiction book (of over a 100 pages) on an electronic device. But that is partly because I don't typically read novels and the non-fiction topics that I am interested in are not yet available in electronic form.

 

But I have read (and do read) comprehend and 'know' a small library's worth of information over the last few years in smaller chunks from the screen of my various devices.

 

I agree with the research and acknowledge the continued need for printed reading skills and materials. But I would also point out that these two formats should not be mutually exclusive, but rather are complimentary.

 

Reading, managing, recalling, citing, validating digital text is quite different from printed text. It may be that printed text is preferable given a certain history/experience/purpose/ or skill set. But there are just as many advantages to electronic texts, and maybe we need to address them as two different important literacies as educators.

 

It reminded me of comments I made when the iPad first came out: http://www.shupester.com/files/iPadDifferent.php

iOS / iPad not 'better' but 'good different'?

Pam Colburn Harland's curator insight, April 28, 2013 7:57 AM

I loved the part about mind mapping and the meta-cognitive things we do before we start reading. Great article with research-based facts.

Sunflower Foundation's curator insight, June 20, 2013 3:32 AM

I think that, given time, our brains will adapt. The generation now in primary school are hardwiring their brains from toddlerhood. But for older readers, my own experience is that while the screen grabs the brain and gets me reading, I don't necessarily read attentively.

It might also increase differences between poor and wealthy as those with access to multiple devices may develop differently to those without. But the jury is still out as to who will have the advantage.

This whole process is fascinating to me. Although the cynic in me still recognizes that there are relative judgements being made and the potential of source bias, it is a great example of quantifying qualitative data and the science of analysis.

Sukkot in Israel

Sukkot in Israel | Digital Imaging - Telling the Story | Scoop.it
Every meal is supposed to be eaten in the sukkah and each evening guests are invited. Some of these guests are no longer living on earth, and therefore don't need to be fed. We are to invite Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Aaron, Joseph, and David. As is typical with guests, they bring something with them to share, and these guests are no different. According to Yanki Tauber from Chabad.org., each guest bestows upon us their particular spiritual attribute!

Abraham brings benevolence; Isaac brings discipline; Jacob brings harmony; Moses brings victory and endurance; Aaron brings humility and splendor; Joseph brings connection and David brings leadership. These guests are welcome in our sukkah!

An ancient site spotted from space could rewrite the history of Vikings in North America

An ancient site spotted from space could rewrite the history of Vikings in North America | Digital Imaging - Telling the Story | Scoop.it
Using satellite images taken by cameras 400 miles above the Earth, Parcak scans for telltale variations in the landscape — discolored soil, changes in the vegetation — that suggest something might be lying beneath them. With an infrared scanner, Parcak can even pinpoint hints of underground chambers and buried buildings. It’s not a substitute for schlepping out to a site and digging it up firsthand, but it does streamline the archaeological process quite a bit. Using this technique, Parcak has uncovered 17 pyramids, 1,000 tombs and some 3,000 forgotten settlements, not to mention helped track down antiquities looters.
