Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 19, 2:31 PM

I'm not a technological Luddite, but more tech isn't always the right answer.  Actively taking notes is one of the most underrated skill now, especially since many think, 'oh, the notes are online.'  It's the mental connections that you make while taking notes that truly matters.  So TAKE GOOD NOTES...even if you aren't going to 'need them' in the future.
