What is the best way to take notes?

27 Nov

While watching the movie “The 11th hour” we tried different methods on taking notes.

The first one was to share a Google document online and share the notes with each other. We did not think this was a great idea because some people start to write irrelevant notes and its not the best to have 10 people working on the same document at the same time. The second method we tried out was to take notes on your own. We did this on our own computer in a program called One Note. The last thing we did was to try the old fashion way with pen and paper. Because almost all the writing we do at our school is on the computer was it a bit strange to write by using pen and paper again. You could also tell that we now write a lot faster on our computers than we do by hand.

Our conclusion was that the best way for us to take notes by ourselves on our own computer. If you use this method you have your notes at all times saved on your computer and not on a paper that can be easy to loose. You can also concentrate on what you are writing and not anyone else.

    Yes it sounds like a reflective answer. perhaps if we took notes on our own and then shared them in class? Then we could learn from each other as well!

    Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my
    own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

      Hi thank you for taking the time to comment, I use WordPress and I’m really happy with it. The design I’m using is called “Bueno” and is one of the free themes WordPress offers. Hope this information was helpful to make your decision 🙂
