Learning from a Classroom Lecture: Handwritten Notes v. Laptops

A typewritten page is a highly desirable product and it would seem that taking notes in class with a laptop would help us learn better.

But a recent article in the Washington Post shows that more effective learning occurs with the old fashioned hand-written note-taking process. (In addition, I have to wonder about the sound of the typing and how very annoying it can be in a classroom setting. Then, too, with WiFi there is a temptation to go on line and not pay attention to what is happening in the lecture.)

Read the article here and see if you agree.
