Taking notes? Bring a pen, skip the computer - The Boston Globe

Taking notes? Bring a pen, skip the computer - The Boston Globe | Alison's Scoops | Scoop.it
“ It’s hard to blame students for wanting to type notes instead of write them out longhand. Think of how much quicker you can type an e-mail than write a letter: Digital note-taking is simply easier. A paper published online in the journal Psychological Science last month, however, suggests that longhand may actually hold an advantage when it comes to the most important reason we take notes—that is, to help us remember what we’ve heard. What Pam Mueller of Princeton University and Daniel Oppenheimer of UCLA’s Anderson School of Management observed is an illuminating example of what psychologists call “desirable difficulty”—the fact that sometimes, obstacles that frustrate us actually help us learn.”

Taking notes? Bring a pen, skip the computer it helps your menory

Marilyn's curator insight, June 11, 2014 10:31 AM

I definitely prefer to take notes using pen and paper -- adding little doodles and illustrations to the notes helps cement the content visually and improves recall.

Can Philology Save the Humanities?

Can Philology Save the Humanities? | Alison's Scoops | Scoop.it
The book offers a compelling solution to the splintered, increasingly irrelevant state of the humanities at modern universities. A return to philological thinking, Turner agues, would be an antidote to the loss of erudition, depth, breadth, and other maladies that plague the humanities in higher learning.

The Myth of Learning Styles 'Debunked' ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The Myth of Learning Styles 'Debunked' ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Alison's Scoops | Scoop.it

" No two human beings are the same and therefore the way they learn and process information is not necessarily the same. Some learn better through visual aids, others find it easy to learn when they are engaged in hands-on activities involving not only their intellectual abilities but also their body parts ( Kinestetics). At the face of it the multiple learning styles theory seems to offer a plausible explanation to the differences exhibited in students learning habits however, there is another side to the story. The graphic below from elearning infographics captures this side pretty throughly. It features 8 arguments against the multiple learning styles theory. I invite you to check them out below and share with us what you think of them. Enjoy"
