Half of high school students would rather read the book on paper than digital, a recent study shows.
At the same time, 18.2 per cent of those polled say they disagree or totally disagree that they learn better by reading on paper than digital, while 31.9 per cent have no opinion, Klassekampen writes on Wednesday.
In addition, 43 per cent of upper secondary students respond that they learn better by noting with pen and paper, while the corresponding proportion among 7th graders is 21 per cent.
At the same time, the study reveals that the oldest students spend the more time on the computer, and also experience being most disturbed.
The “Monitor 2019” was implemented by Sintef on behalf of the Directorate of Education. Data collection was done in the period May to August this year, and 3,440 pupils in 4th, 7th and 9th grade and VG2 (study specialization) attended 155 schools across the country.
