When you listen to a long talk (like a TED Talk) or a lecture (like in a classroom), be an active listener. Take notes! WHY? Because taking notes helps you focus and reviewing notes helps you remember.
Here are 5 techniques for taking notes.
1. Outline Method
The Outline Note-Taking Method utilizes indents.
Related thoughts or facts or details
2. Cornell Method
In this note-taking method:
- Keywords (for Main topics) are listed on the left
- Main notes about the keywords are listed on the right
- A summary of everything you learned is added to the bottom – but this can be done later when you review.
3. The Boxing Method
In this note-taking method, group related topics together in a box. When there is a new topic, a new box is created. Write each box in a different color.
This method makes for easy review!
4. The Mapping Method
Start in the middle, make a map.
5. The Visual Method
Draw images to show concepts. This makes the content easier to recall and think about later.
