Paper or screen? Studies have shown that people who read text on the screen remember and reproduce it worse than those who read text from paper. However, research in 2011 by Rakefet Ackerman and Morris Goldsmith suggests that the problem may be that people put too much hope on devices that they simply cannot meet. Scientists have noticed that paper is best for thoughtful reading and study. The screen is just perfect for viewing small texts: news, messages, letters, notes. When asked to read text from a screen, students did so faster than those who read from paper. But they did not read it carefully and understood the material worse.
