Taking Notes during a PowerPoint Presentation | PowerPoint Presentation | Taking detailed notes | Scoop.it

Many of you might have got an opportunity to attend a presentation. But did you ever think of taking notes? There are complete methodologies to take notes during presentations, for example the Cornell Notes method. The Cornell method provides a systematic format for condensing and organizing notes in the classroom, for example the student divides the paper into two columns: the note-taking column (usually on the right) is twice the size of the questions/key word column (on the left). The student should leave five to seven lines, or about two inches, at the bottom of the page.

 

My Thought:

Many times, I find myself taking notes during a powerpoint presentation. However, a lot of times I don’t really know what to write down, end up writing down everything. If you’re in the same shoe, check out this guide because it helped me a whole lot. This guide starts off telling you to take notes prior to the presentation because you’re usually informed about the presentation a couple days ahead of time. This way when you take notes, you’ll be more organized, thus, obtain more information from the powerpoint. Next, during the presentation, make sure the speaker’s voice is clear because you will need to take notes while listening. Also, make sure to use abbreviations because it will save a lot of time, preventing a missing topic. Lastly, after the presentation, make sure to review and revise your notes, this will help you absorb the information.

The Learning Toolbox - Cornell Notes

A system to help you take organised notes.

 

My Thoughts:

This article is very simple and organized, rather than, detailed paragraphed form. I really like the format of this website because they list clearly what you need to do and how you do it, in this case, how to take Cornell notes. It explains the steps on how to successfully take notes by separating key points. I was taught briefly on how to take Cornell notes before, but after reviewing this guide, I caught myself making plenty of mistakes. Fortunately, I am able to take notes on taking Cornell notes and fix my mistakes. Although I really like the structure of this guide, but I feel like the details were very vague. If he/she included more on what type of notes I should take in the different areas, this guide would be solid.

Thinking Notes: A Strategy to Encourage Close Reading

Thinking Notes: A Strategy to Encourage Close Reading | Taking detailed notes | Scoop.it

By making Thinking Notes, or metacognative markers, consistent between students when they are reading, you prepare them for a better discussion of the text. Watch how to use this simple strategy to help your students better understand texts.

 

My Thoughts:

This video was very helpful and each topic the teacher talked about was all clearly explained. He explained how teachers can help their students absorb an article or a novel by making notes for themselves. He starts off having his students scanning through a reading packet, asking questions about confusing phrases or words; less so on asking thought questions. Next, he has the students share their questions to the whole class, starting a mini class discussion. Then he’d tell his students to underline important thoughts and the thesis of the story so the class can have a longer discussion. Personally, I think underlining and making margin notes really helps me remember what I am reading because it involves my brain. In fact, a lot of times when I read a novel, I use a sticky note to make notes so I can easily recall on what I read. Overall, I thought this video guide was great because the teacher actually use a video of him teaching while he narrates. This way, I can easily follow along also visually understanding what he’s talking about.
