    1. A 2004 study found that students more fully remembered what they’d read on paper. Those results were echoed by an experiment that looked specifically at e-books, and another by psychologist Erik Wästlund at Sweden’s Karlstad University, who found that students learned better when reading from paper.

      My stance on e-reading vs paper reading is definately pro-paper. But, as I read this stastitic, the year 2004 stood out to me. This upcoming year, my students will have been born in inbetween 2001-2003. They didn't start kindergardten until 2006-2008. Most of them started the same time the first Iphone came out. Therir earliest years begin with the e-reader craze. I wonder if the data is different for these digital-super natives.
