There is an interesting question on this site:
Now my question is, does writing something on computer (i.e. using Word, Notepad, ...) help memorize it?
I usually learn by rewriting texts I read on computer. I never use copy-paste and always rewrite text myself and change it a little (acording to my needs, also I often translate it).
I use computer mainly because:
- I can write faster on computer than on paper
- I am often lazy to find paper and I don't want to waste paper when I will probably throw it away 2 days later anyway (consider environment, please don't consider as a "throw away exam")
- It easier to edit text written on computer, can search within it, ...
So does the writing text on computer have the same advantages as writing down on paper?
Sub question: Does formatting of text have any influence on this?
