Reading Matters, Fonts and ICT

This isn’t quite sociology, but it is important if you are a learner or a teacher, and anyway, I’m always saying we shouldn’t get stuck in mono-disciplinary ruts. R4’s Today programme featured this item on the pros and cons of more and less difficult fonts. Food for thought for educators. The interviewee takes the view that making things harder to read actually means that they are more easily remembered. But perhaps this needs very careful measurement; is it a significant difference? And anyway, do the benefits of being more easily remembered really outweigh the benefits of the easier access offered by the more digestible fonts? Discuss.
