How can I convert my handwritten notes into Word documents?

How can I convert my handwritten notes into Word documents? | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
“Michael has a large pile of handwritten notepads that he would like to convert into Microsoft Word documents I have many A4 pads of handwritten notes, which I would like to convert into Microsoft Word documents.”
Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:
If you want to take notes by hand but also want to keep the notes digitally, be warned, you may have limited success with OCR software. One Note, my favourite piece of Microsoft software, seems to be the best option to creating digitised, handwritten notes. Kinda defeats the purpose of toting that Moleskin around though.

While this sounds like a good idea, I don't really see what advantages this would bring if they cant download them to the device as well. The Scoop says it only works when students are in close proximity, so what is the difference between looking at your screen or looking at their own?  And how would I know they were looking at the slides, and not Facebook? Interested in thoughts from this group.....?
