Cornell Notetaking Method Custom PDF Generator

Alistair Parker's insight:

I created this site in an effort to help students learn the value in the Cornell Note Taking method and because I wish someone had taught it to me when I was a young student.

This simple generator has become a very popular place among students of all ages - inside the classroom and out. It really doesn't cost much money to keep it going, but if you've found it to be of use, please share the site with your classmates and teachers. Chances are, they'll like it too.

Pomodoro Technique - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Pomodoro Technique is a time management method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s.[1] The technique uses a timer to break down periods of work into 25-minute intervals called 'Pomodoros' (from the Italian word for 'tomato') separated by breaks. Closely related to concepts such as timeboxing and iterative and incremental development used in software design, the method has been adopted in pair programming contexts.[2] The method is based on the idea that frequent breaks can improve mental agility.[3][4]

There are five basic steps to implementing the technique:

The stages of planning, tracking, recording, processing and visualizing are fundamental to the technique. In the planning phase tasks are prioritized by recording them in a "To Do Today" list. This enables users to estimate the effort tasks require. As "pomodoros" are completed, they are recorded, adding to a sense of accomplishment and providing raw data for subsequent self-observation and improvement.[1]
