Bookmarks provide an efficient and well established means for structuring, indexing and tagging documents, all important processes for successful learning. We present a first prototype of digital paper bookmarks, writable adhesive stickers which combine the intuitiveness of paper bookmarks with electronic processing. The bookmarking actions performed on a paper document are automatically synchronized with the electronic system. This provides for a collaborative visualization of own bookmarks and shared ones of other users, which allows contrasting the own understanding with those of other learners. Four different semantic types of bookmarks scaffold students in their learning processes and enable automatic aggregations.
