I Can’t Take Class Notes!

Taking class notes is a skill most students need. Students experience various degrees of success with taking class notes. There are some students who just cannot take class notes because they cannot mutitask – that is listen and write at the same time.

If a student has difficulty taking class notes, there are some solutions. One is to get notes from a fellow student. Another is to get the teacher notes and the student can use that as a guide to add more notes. If the teacher uses a powerpoint, getting the powerpoint before the class lecture and discussion will be good because it can serve as a guide.

What about recording a lecture and discussions? This is a possibility. Permission is needed from the teacher to do the recording. It means the student has to re-listen to the lecture and discussion again and can stop the recording to take notes. This takes more time.

There is a smart pen that records the lecture and discussion as the student is using it to write notes. This functions as a recording and the student can go back and re-listen to the lecture and discussion.
