    The Paradox on the Use of Technology for Taking Notes During the first few weeks as a college freshman I identified many contrasts of a higher education and the public school system I was formed in. Grade school, and eventually secondary school, highly discouraged the use of electronics in the classroom. In fact, the use of electronic devices at all on campus was grounds for detention, a confiscation of the ‘contraband,’ and the phoning of parents to retrieve the device from the assistant principal. Comparatively, many professors at the university do not mind students’ use of phones, laptops, and various electronic aids. Finally, those days of hand-cramping notetaking were behind me—or so I thought. I was challenged by one of my professors…

    In chapter 6, Making and Taking Worthy Notes, it talks about how good notetaking can contribute to the success of the student. In the beginning of the chapter, a scenario is presented to us in a pottery classroom.

    The reading for this week provided us with great strategies to implement into our classrooms that are research based to help our students be successful academically. These four key tools to success are notetaking, summarizing, homework, and practicing. In Ceri Dean’s chapter 6, he discusses that teachers should teach these at the beginning of each school year to give students concrete ways for student success (Dean,2012, pp.80-98). I found several “golden nuggets” in this reading that I will…

    I like the fact that throughout the lesson there will be scaffolding with how I will be telling the students what is important to write down in their information packet. But I feel that maybe at the begging of the unit I could have them fill in the blanks with their notetaking so that they are still developing their schemes, but they will be able to concentrate on what the lecture is about since they are not worrying about what they need to write. As the lessons go on then the notetaking will be…

    questions, critique information on the particular assignment, and possibly depending on the class have a peer revise the assignment as well. Being successful in college is like a puzzle, every piece resembling a step that comes together so that the big picture can be seen. If too many pieces are missing then the picture can’t be recognized. The most underrated and probably least performed out of all the steps that it takes to be successful is notetaking. Notetaking can be like your lifeline,…

College classes are a giant leap forward. I have my short paper, in a draft form started. I took a look inside myself to remember “what I wanted to do/be when I grew up?” Asking myself; Why 30+ years after dropping out of High School did I decide to go to college? Why this particular course and is this the…

    To begin a proper investigation into the actions and motives of a certain group of people, my partner and I carried our curiosity to the center of physical activity on East Campus: Brodie Gym.

    (Oberg). Once the students have completed the “Cue Column” and the “Note Taking Column”, this is when they begin to write their summary of understanding the main ideas and what they learned (Oberg line 11-12).
