“Psychological studies have shown that we retain 15 percent of the information we receive through our ears, while retention can be increased to 65 percent when the information is presented visually. Further, even if the Judge takes one day to think about the evidence, the statistics are even more startling. Studies have indicated that after 12 hours, a person will remember only about 10 percent of the information they receive through listening. Retention rates increase 65 percent to 85 percent if the information is presented in simultaneous listening and visual formats.” (Balbi, L., 2014)
Still wondering if technology in the courtroom is worth it?
