The Power of the Pen and Paper

The Power of the Pen and Paper

In an increasingly digitized world, it's easy to forget the power of pen and paper. We use laptops and tablets for everything from taking notes in meetings to writing blog posts and drafting emails. But something must be said about the good old-fashioned notebook and pen. In this blog post, we'll explore why paper can be mightier than the keyboard.


There are a few key reasons why paper can be mightier than the keyboard when it comes to note-taking and brainstorming. First, when we write by hand, we are more likely to process information and remember it later. A study published in 2014 by Pam A. Mueller & Daniel M. Oppenheimer found that students who took notes by hand were more likely to retain information than those who took notes on laptops. 


Another reason paper can be better than a digital device is that it allows you to draw diagrams and sketches quickly. This can be helpful when you're brainstorming ideas or trying to work through a complicated problem. Diagrams and drawings can also help you remember information better than words alone. 


Finally, writing by hand can help you focus and concentrate more quickly than typing on a laptop. For example, when you're trying to take note of something important, you're less likely to get distracted if you're only focused on what you're writing, rather than also worrying about how it looks on the screen. 


There are several reasons why pen and paper can be mightier than the keyboard. First, handwriting helps us process information better and remember it later. Drawing diagrams is easier on paper, and it can improve retention. Lastly, handwriting helps us focus more easily than typing on a laptop. Try reaching for a notebook instead of your laptop!
