In class and in meetings, jotting down what you’re hearing is key—so it’s worth it to figure out the best ways to take notes.
Here are some tips you should keep in mind:
Hand-writing notes forces you to think critically on the fly, deciding in the moment what key concepts you need to jot down, since it takes longer than typing what you’re hearing.
nd-writing makes you listen more attentively and prioritize only the most important elements of what the presenter is saying.
Verbatim note taking, has generally been seen to indicate relatively shallow cognitive processing. Individuals who think critically and use their own words to describe what they’re hearing tend to do better with the practical application of what they’re learning.
While the content is fresh in your mind, you should go back through the notes and condense them, pulling out key words and concepts and using supplemental materials like a textbook or presentation slides to add in anything you originally missed.
This helps with committing the information to memory.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
