3. Improve your memory

If we don’t remember the insight, did we even learn anything at all?

Sometimes studying can feel like a memory game more than anything else. So why not give ourselves the best chance at remembering what we need to for that final paper or exam? We found tons of research pointing to an increase in information retention when hand writing notes instead of typing them.

Students are able to perform better through recalling information when needed. There should be more pen-to-paper studying to help increase memory and learning.

“You learn to write by writing. It’s a truism, but what makes it a truism is that it’s true. The only way to learn to write is to force yourself to produce a certain number of words on a regular basis.”

The Charting Method

Charting note taking method uses columns to organize information. This method is useful for lessons that cover a lot of facts or relationships between topics.

How?

  • The page is divided into columns labeled by category. The details of each category are filled out in the rows below.
  • When information about a category is mentioned, jot it down underneath the proper column.
  • When the next topic begins move down one row and begin again.
