People often feel that it is harder to remember and comprehend textual materials presented digitally, on a computer screen, as compared to texts presented on paper. When the study task is the same, is it really the case? Under what conditions? When screen learning is indeed inferior to paper learning, what can account for the difference? Is the difference attributable to technology-related factors or to cognitive factors? This line of research addresses these questions by utilizing the metacognitive approach for analyzing learning regulation. The findings of four experiments suggest that learning regulation is less effective on screen than on paper, and that technology-related factors are probably not the main source for screen inferiority. The final two experiments offer two methodologies for overcoming the inferiority of screen learning. Considerations that should be taken into account when developing computerized learning environments will be discussed.

Dr. Ackerman is an assistant professor at the Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management at the Technion—Israel Institute of Technology. Her research deals with the cognitive processes of learning, question answering, and problem solving. Her studies are based on the metacognitive approach, by which subjective assessment, or monitoring, of knowledge guides the actions people take to achieve their goals. Understanding the factors that affect the reliability of the metacognitive monitoring and the cases that are particularly prone to bias offers a foundation for developing effective learning environments and techniques. Before her academic career, Dr. Ackerman worked in the high-tech industry as a leader of software development teams.
