Pen and paper 'beats computers for retaining knowledge'

Survey of students across 10 countries suggests handwriting and printed books have advantages over digital materials

One of the reasons some students favour handwriting is the role it plays in learning and retaining knowledge. Many of the students in the study found that making handwritten notes leads to greater retention of data than if it is typed.

Students also experienced difficulties in writing mathematic and scientific formulas and graphs on computers, the study found. But they noted that searching for information, correcting typed material, spell checking and legibility were all advantages of using a computer.

The government has failed to make a convincing case for opening a new wave of grammar schools in England, say MPs.

The education select committee has cast doubt on claims that they can help social mobility.

The Department for Education has argued that removing the ban on opening new grammars will be a way of making "more good school places available, to more parents, in more parts of the country".

The cross-party committee of MPs, responding to the evidence gathered about plans to increase selective education, said ministers still needed to demonstrate how this would improve social mobility and close the gap between rich and poor pupils.
