Notes taking is our genuine effort to capture what we listen

Helps us in active listening
Engages our mind; partially or wholly
Establishes our connection to the material
Assists in quick mental recall later
Guides detailed study of textbooks
Can Audio/Video Recording Lecture is equally effective?
Takes as much time, if not more, again
Important points and stress missed
Filtration of key ideas is not possible
Quick overview, later recall is difficult

Five-Rs Method of Notes taking listen

Divide the page to two columns (1/3 + 2/3):
Five Rs:
Record: Main column, points, questions, drawings
Reduce: After class, summarise in margin (further filter)
Recite: Cover main column, recall ideas using summary column
Reflect: Think about the points, relate it to other ideas, create new
Review: Spend 10 mins every week reviewing notes (Recall, builds memory)

5R Method of Taking Notes

Mind Map: Characteristics

Mind maps are, by definition, a graphical method of taking

notes. The visual basis of them helps one to distinguish words

or ideas...
They generally take a hierarchical or tree branch format, with
ideas branching into their subsections.
Mind maps allow for greater creativity when recording ideas
and information, as well as allowing the note-taker to
associate words with visual representations hence engages
both the parts of our brain.
