Note takers, your time will come when you will show the world that taking pen to paper is not a lost art form. The eggheads in academia prove this every day. Students still take to writing on their personalized tablet with enthusiasm. This practice, one that has yet to find a predecessor, is very common in our classrooms today. Some choose to take notes on their laptop. Others will option for the most current digital trend, a computer tablet. Though we may be barraged every year by the newest and fancy electronic doodad, we cannot overlook the benefits of writing information down.
The benefits are simple and straightforward. Personalized tablets are economical. This is why many people in academia, students and career professionals alike, are still using them devotedly. Another measured advantage of using a tablet in a classroom setting is the process that happens between the brain, the hand or pen and the paper (the object). When students write down their notes they tend to remember more of what they are copying. It’s this repetitive collaboration that will assist them in their academic achievements.
This mechanical method of writing words down goes back even farther to when our elementary school teacher made us write something down 100 times. By the end, our hand would tremble in agony, but we would remember even till this day, that we shouldn’t throw spit balls in class. Why contend with this proven technique? Technology (computers, smartphones, and digital tablets) has proven itself to be a worthy supporter, but there is just one problem. Students learn more writing their notes down than typing away on any gadget. Scholars, school boys and girls, pupils, and apprentices, don’t shy away from the ease and comfort of the tech world. You need to work on a computer for term papers and other assignments – we understand – but, remember this the next time you’re typing away on your keyboard, real learning occurs when you prep for it by writing on the pages of your personalized tablet. Write that 100 times.
