Reading literature in digital environments.  

 

But for the record, consult also the journal, _Computers and Composition_, at http://computersandcomposition.candcblog.org/default.html , which has been publishing research into the effects of computers on reading and writing since 1983.

5 Ways Social Media Is Changing Your Brain | IFLScience

5 Ways Social Media Is Changing Your Brain | IFLScience | The 21st Century | Scoop.it
The persistence of social media is certainly changing how things are done. In a matter of minutes, you can wish an old friend happy birthday on Facebook, find a recipe for dinner on Pinterest, watch a how-to project on YouTube, and get up to the minute updates on events from Twitter. But social media isn’t just changing how we act; it’s actually changing our brains as well.

A Learning Secret: Don’t Take Notes with a Laptop

Digital Gloss's curator insight, June 4, 2014 1:24 PM

Here again, the studies seem to show that longhand writing should not be relegated to irrelevance.

From the article: "taking notes by hand forces the brain to engage in some heavy “mental lifting,” and these efforts foster comprehension and retention. By contrast, when typing students can easily produce a written record of the lecture without processing its meaning, as faster typing speeds allow students to transcribe a lecture word for word without devoting much thought to the content."
