Putting Pen to Paper


Does writing something down on paper help your brain learn it better than typing it out on a screen? A Japanese study suggests that this is the case.

“Paper notebooks are more useful for thinking and generating creative ideas,” the lead researcher said.

So don’t give up on that analog journal yet!
