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 | Thinking, Learning, and Laughing | Scoop.it

Why not keep paper and evolve screen-based reading into something else entirely? Screens obviously offer readers experiences that paper cannot. Scrolling may not be the ideal way to navigate a text as long and dense as Moby Dick, but the New York Times, Washington Post, ESPN and other media outlets have created beautiful, highly visual articles that depend entirely on scrolling and could not appear in print in the same way.

from Nik Peachey---this article compares screen reading with paper-based text

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, November 28, 2013 1:53 PM

Surveys indicate that screens and e-readers interfere with two other important aspects of navigating texts: serendipity and a sense of control.


People report that they enjoy flipping to a previous section of a paper book when a sentence surfaces a memory of something they read earlier, for example, or quickly scanning ahead on a whim. People also like to have as much control over a text as possible - to highlight with chemical ink, easily write notes to themselves in the margins as well as deform the paper however they choose.


Christy P.Novack's curator insight, December 9, 2013 12:10 AM

A detailed paper discussing screens vs paper. Lots of other links included. There is no research paper connected with article. I did a paper on practice modalites that involved print text vs media for learning and engagement. More papers are needed out there on such topics, as technology research studies can quickly become outdated.

Mirna Goldberger's curator insight, December 20, 2013 11:21 AM

I am definitely not made to scroll, my brain prefers printed paper.  I cannot focus and retain as well, when I read online.
