Here is an interesting opinion piece about the impact of screen-based learning.

According to some research, it is believed that 'deep reading' does not happen when reading on a screen. This is because the medium of print requires more attention and time and therefore we read at a slower pace. This is in contrast to the digital platform where we may frequently skim material. Linda Stone calls the distractions associated with screens as 'continuous partial attention'.

This article could be used for the Education unit (the organisation of teaching and learning), and The Media.
