Note Taking: Typing versus Writing

Close up of note taking with pen and paper.

This article about researching styles of student note taking was a great read from Huffington Post.  Personally, I think that it’s too early to call this definitive but the results are definitely interesting.

My career as a student mostly entailed taking notes by hand versus on a laptop.  It actually did help me retain information better if I wrote it out.  I never compared it to taking notes on a laptop.  Most meetings I attend I take a laptop with me (although pen and paper do still accompany me from time to time.)  I will be paying closer attention to how I retain information better based on this article!

What about you?  What’s your preference or experience?
