Teachers

I have found that a great many sites and authors interchange and conflate “computer literacy” and “digital literacy”.

Teachers

Studies after studies got to the same conclusion: we retain more when we write than when we type. Typing notes into a laptop during a lecture is a less efficient form of note taking than writing.
