Note-taking: A Research Roundup :: Jennifer Gonzalez

Note-taking: A Research Roundup :: Jennifer Gonzalez | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

"Every day, in classrooms all over the world, students are taking notes. I have my own half-baked ideas about what makes one approach better than another, and I’m sure you do too. But if we’re going to call ourselves professionals, we need to know what the research says, yes?

"So I’ve combed through about three decades’ worth of research, and I’m going to tell you what it says about best practices in note-taking. Although this is not an exhaustive summary, it hits on some of the most frequently debated questions on the subject.

"This information is going to be useful for any subject area—I found some really good stuff that would be especially useful for STEM teachers or anyone who does heavy work with calculations, diagrams, and other technical illustrations. Of course, there’s plenty here for teachers of social studies, English, and the humanities as well, so everyone sit tight because you’ll probably come away with something you can apply to your classroom."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

An exceptional summary of key research on the topic. Succinct practical, and with numerous links, this post is a must-read for every educator starting in about grade 4 up through graduate school and adult ed.

Thanks to Jennifer Gonzalez for this literature review.  Also a tip of the hat to Jim Lerman for his insights on this topic.

Highly recommended reading - and if you don't feel like reading, listen to the linked podcast version.  Not only does this article stress the value of note taking to learning and understanding, it provides several well outlined note taking strategies to try.

How Noteaking Is Changing


It’d be easy to fall victim to hyperbole here and suggest that notetaking is the stuff of electricity and holograms, but that’s only partly true. Today, 40% of students prefer a mix of physical and digital notes. In the digital classroom then, the primary shift parallels blended learning: a mix of physical and electronic information that serves as a compromise between “old” and “new” learning.


In the digital classroom, recording pens, tablets, laptops, audio software, and social media make recording, reviewing, sharing, and storing these notes different than it was even 10 years ago. The infographic below explores how.

Whether students choose to handwrite, sketch, or type their notes, the challenge lies not in choosing, but in creating a system that allows them to ultimately curate, synthesize, and reflect on what they learn..

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Filtering digital information is a survival skill.

 

Teaching curation skills means teaching critical thinking as part of the note taking, and information gathering process.  You can weave this skill into any curriculum you teach. You serve your subject area as you build thinking skills and implement standards.
