Stop Taking Notes - BioQuakes - 0 views

  • Stop taking notes. Scientists have recently proven that you are less likely to remember something once you write it down
  • They split a population of undergraduate students into 2 groups, one that took notes and one that relied on straight memory. They showed them pairs of cards and instructed them to memorize the location. One group wrote it down and the other did not. After the study time, the note-taking group had their notes taken away and the full group was tested on the cards’ location. Surprisingly, the note-taking group performed very poorly in the exercise, far underperforming the memory group

Stop Taking Notes And Pay Attention | Synergy Tutoring - 0 views

  • It is amazing to me that the practice of note-taking in class is so widespread, given how ineffective it is
  • Unfortunately, if you try to take notes while you are listening, and then try to study from your notes later, you are receiving half-way exposure twice that doesn’t even add up to a whole
  • The philosophy of note-taking is patently absurd when you really think about it. The idea is that in class, the teacher verbally recites relevant facts, while students are supposed to split their attention between listening and writing them down, essentially taking dictation and creating a very low-fidelity personal copy of their textbook on the fly. Then the students are supposed to go home and re-learn (or learn for the first time) the information that the teacher gave them in class from this hastily constructed replica.

  • If you have spent your time in class trying to write things down rather than listening fully, of course you won’t remember what was said, and will feel later like you have to rely on your notes.

Stop taking notes and start learning - - 0 views

  • As early as I can remember, we were told to take notes.
  • during that conversation, I paid attention to more than just what was being said; I watched eye movement, body language, and every other form of nonverbal communication. I wasn’t just listening, I was engaging in an interaction. It was then that I found myself wondering, how much was I missing in other classes because I was too busy taking notes?
  • I started to challenge myself not to take notes during other classes and to actively listen, instead

How Google Is Changing The Way We Think - 0 views

  • According to Small’s research, using a search engine increased activity in the regions of the brain dealing with decision making, complex reasoning and vision. Also, the more-experienced Internet users exhibited more than twice as much brain activity as the less-experienced subjects, leading Small to predict that the more we search, the stronger the brain’s reaction to searching.
  • One influential study, produced by researchers at Columbia, Harvard and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, found that people were less likely to remember a piece of trivia when they had access to the Internet. Instead, they were more likely to remember where the information had been saved.
  • “The Internet has become a primary form of external or transactive memory, where information is stored collectively outside ourselves,” the researchers concluded.

How computers change the way we learn - 0 views

  •  
    "While there's no doubt that information technology can have its downsides for our day-to-day behaviour, there is very little evidence that computers are damaging our brains - any more than writing made us more forgetful. In fact, computers might just make us a bit smarter."
