Taking Notes By Hand: Better Brain Processing

  • Keyboarding information verbatim into the laptop does not involve any cognitive engagement like concept and vocabulary mapping, paraphrasing, summarizing or organizing as manual, by-hand note taking does.
  • When we use a pen and paper, we are creating notes in the real sense, crafting and designing them by hand, which aids brain processing.
  • The cognitive demands of note-taking, taking into consideration speed and legibility makes the process slightly challenging, and creates stronger memory.
