Everything Science Knows About Reading On Screens

We've adapted our reading habits to fit our screens, but at a cost.

 

"Despite the apparent benefits of paper, Mangen and other reading researchers caution the screen-reading vs. traditional reading question has nuances that scientists have yet to fully understand. Which method works better may depend on the individual (for example, there’s evidence that for some people with dyslexia, e-readers improve reading speed and comprehension). Ultimately, it may be that both print and screen have unique advantages, and we’ll need to be able to read equally well on both—which means keeping our distracted habits onscreen from bleeding into what we read on an e-book or paperback. And reading researchers have some advice for how to prevent this: forget your smartphone and computer, sit down, and read a book."


Via Mel Riddile, Dean J. Fusto
Wendy Cotta's insight:

We know something about the digital vs. print reading but the nuances of advantages and disadvantages of both remain to be understood. Suspend judgement, test, reflect, and share.
