reeducationcomic sans italicised
easier is better?
complex is more substantial
certain types of difficulty can actually be beneficial
disfluency could improve learning
making something harder to read helps you remember more information
making things harder to read makes you remember more of the information.
So giving someone a textbook to read in a subtly unusual font will help learning.
It sounds a bit wacky
but it's been trialled in schools
and is an idea
that's being taken seriously.
