A while ago I received a mail from Marjolein. She wrote that she had read a book of Mark Tigchelaar about reading and memorising. In the book is referred to software you can use when reading texts on a screen.
Research has shown that we don’t take in as much when we read from a screen than from paper. Apparently we scan the page and don’t read the whole page. The structure of a text is very important for memorising information. Obviously you can’t control the structure of a text and chances are big that the structure won’t help you memorising your text so it is very important to focus during your reading. Focus is a big tool for memorising better. The mentioned software helps you to focus better and therefor to process information better.
Would be great to hear from you how it has helped you.
