Friday 5: Notetaking

Friday 5: Notetaking

Greetings –

Friday 5 readers seemed to like the flash cards list from a few weeks ago, so this week I thought I’d create another study skill oriented list. Hope you find this beneficial for your students!

1)    Geek to Live: Take Study-Worthy Lecture Notes – Lifehacker
http://lifehacker.com/software/note-taking/geek-to-live–take-studyworthy-lecture-notes-202418.php

Lifehacker is an amazingly practical site and I think older students will find these tips based on the Cornell note taking method. Links to PDF and word templates are provided.

2)    Cornell Notes – 43FoldersWiki
http://wiki.43folders.com/index.php/Cornell_Notes

If you’re like me and never heard of the Cornell method, here is a good overview of this note taking strategy. There is a link off of this site to D*I*Y Planner (http://www.diyplanner.com/)  which also contains a great deal of helpful information.

3)    The Learning Toolbox
http://coe.jmu.edu/learningtoolbox/index.html

There is a great section on Cornell notes within this site that is designed for students, parents, and teachers of learning challenged students. It looks like the tools and strategies listed here would be beneficial to all learners!

4)    Evernote
http://www.evernote.com/en/

This product for Windows machines was cited at one session I attended at Closing the Gap.

5)    AquaMinds – NoteTaker
http://www.aquaminds.com/index.jsp

I have a NFR copy of NoteTaker and am just starting to play around with it. It looks very promising and seems ideal for kids and adults.
