E-Readers and Visual Fatigue

E-Readers and Visual Fatigue | E-böcker, surfplattor, sociala medier | Scoop.it
reading on the LCD (Kindle Fire HD) triggers higher visual fatigue with respect to both the E-ink (Kindle Paperwhite) and the paper book. The absence of differences between E-ink and paper suggests that, concerning visual fatigue, the E-ink is indeed very similar to the paper.
NU-biblioteket's insight:

Ebooks v paper - FT.com

Ebooks v paper - FT.com | E-böcker, surfplattor, sociala medier | Scoop.it
Choosing books to take on holiday has got more difficult in recent years. Now it is a question not just of what to read but how – on paper, tablet, e-reader, or perhaps even a phone – and people have strong opinions on which is best. But is there
NU-biblioteket's insight:

hard to know whether the preferences we have for one type of reading device over another are rooted in the essentials of cognition or are simply cultural. As another researcher, Simone Benedetto, points out: “The fact that the large majority of the population is still trained to the use of paper since early childhood has a major influence on the preference for paper.”

An Investigation of Reading Rate Patterns and Retrieval Outcomes of Elementary School Students with E-books

An Investigation of Reading Rate Patterns and Retrieval Outcomes of Elementary School Students with E-books | E-böcker, surfplattor, sociala medier | Scoop.it
NU-biblioteket's insight:

Moreover, a ubiquitous learning context thus was properly formed with
e-book reader portability, in which students may gain authentic knowledge by interacting with learning material and
the real environment and further achieve meaningful learning (Huang, Chiu, Liu, & Chen, 2011; Huang, Huang,
Huang, & Lin, 2012). The future design of e-book reading system could be designed in consideration of fostering
metacognitive capability by taking mobility advantage of e-book

Students’ perceptions of the usefulness of an E-book with annotative and sharing capabilities as a tool for learning: a case study

Students’ perceptions of the usefulness of an E-book with annotative and sharing capabilities as a tool for learning: a case study | E-böcker, surfplattor, sociala medier | Scoop.it
(2014). Students’ perceptions of the usefulness of an E-book with annotative and sharing capabilities as a tool for learning: a case study. Innovations in Education and Teaching International: Vol. 51, No. 1, pp. 34-45. doi: 10.1080/14703297.2013.771969
NU-biblioteket's insight:

"Hitherto, there is a lack of empirical research that examines e-books with annotative and sharing capabilities. This research study aims at exploring the usefulness of a next-generation e-book (NG-eBook), with annotative and sharing capabilities, with the focus on using the e-book to promote student learning through reflection and sharing of ideas."

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

The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens | E-böcker, surfplattor, sociala medier | Scoop.it
E-readers and tablets are becoming more popular as such technologies improve, but research suggests that reading on paper still boasts unique advantages
NU-biblioteket's insight:

recent surveys suggest that although most people still prefer paper—especially when reading intensively—attitudes are changing as tablets and e-reading technology improve and reading digital books for facts and fun becomes more common.

JALT2013 Plenary Speaker article: How social media changes our thinking and learning | JALT Publications | E-böcker, surfplattor, sociala medier | Scoop.it
NU-biblioteket's insight:
Although research suggests that such use of
the Internet may cause problems for our ability
to do extensive reading and engage deeply on
a topic, the evidence is not that clear cut. Brain
scans showed that the brains of people who were
familiar with technology were the most active
when they were reading online, and were more
active than the brains of non-tech-savvy readers of
print. This suggests that, even if we are reading dif-
ferently online, our brains may not be less engaged;
they may just be working in a different way.

Problematic Screen Reading: Is it Caused by Our Brain? – TXT: a Book and Digital Media Studies journal | E-böcker, surfplattor, sociala medier | Scoop.it
NU-biblioteket's insight:

"If the producers of e-readers work on ways to improve the navigation of the texts, so that the brain can conceptualise the landscape of the book, nothing is making the reading any harder than a normal book would do."
