Measured and perceived differences between writing on digital and analog surfaces

Digital devices have the potential to play a positive role in the classroom.  For example, longhand note-taking has been shown help learners better remember what they’ve learned than typing notes on a keyboard.  With younger generations more accustomed to using digital devices in their everyday lives, it is important that the educational system finds a way to move digital devices into the classroom in a way that these devices can support learning.  In this study, we hope to gain a better understanding of how students are able to take notes on different digital devices, and what properties might help them improve their learning in the modern classroom.
