  • 26. “Much of my learning comes from a physical interaction with the text: bookmarks, highlights, page-tearing, sticky notes and other marks representing the importance of certain passages — not to mention margin notes, where most of my paper ideas come from and interaction with the material occurs,” he explained. “All these things have been lost, and if not lost they’re too slow to keep up with my thinking, and the ‘features’ have been rendered useless.” Princeton - Students http://bit.ly/princestudent Monday, May 24, 2010
  • 27. Darden’s Kindle experiment is not quite over but the verdict is already in: Most Darden students prefer not to use the electronic reading devices in the B-school classroom. Darden http://bit.ly/dardenkindle Monday, May 24, 2010
