Digital Media May Be Changing How You Think

25/05/2016

New research suggests whether information is presented electronically or on paper affects the way we process it

According to a recent press release from Dartmouth College, "Tablet and laptop users beware. Using digital platforms such as tablets and laptops for reading may make you more inclined to focus on concrete details rather than interpreting information more abstractly, according to a new study published in the proceedings of ACM CHI '16, the ACM Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, May 7-12. The findings serve as another wake-up call to how digital media may be affecting our likelihood of using abstract thought."
