Transcript

  • 1. BYOD Notetaking Feel free to use your iPad or other device or a laptop from the wall
  • 2. Notetaking is Crucial ● Many of our students are not good note- takers – Tend to be very passive – May take the “it'll be up on Moodle” attitude ● The process of creating notes is at least as important as the notes themselves – Looking at a photo or PDF after the fact doesn't cut it
  • 3. Working Memory Model
  • 4. Encoding in LTR ● To get something into Long-Term Recall, you have to work actively with it ● Notetaking processes are one way of getting there – Unless we're doing something else intentionally, we need students to take notes!
  • 5. Why Take Notes on Your Device? ● Organization—everything is there – Tagging – Searching ● Variety of media—some devices support this better than others – Drawings – Pictures – Text ● Some students compensate for learning disabilities (dysgraphia) with device
  • 6. Why NOT Take Notes on Your Device? ● Does taking notes on computer help students less than hand-writing them? – Some research (1996, 2013) shows no differences between hand-written and laptop notes – Some recent studies (2012, in press) show students are more likely to take notes verbatim on computer, and their recall suffers for it ● In one study, even telling students not to take verbatim notes didn't work
  • 7. Why NOT Take Notes on Your Device? ● Some devices are not well-suited to classes that require a lot of diagrams or equations – Less a concern for tablets than laptops
  • 8. Minimizing or Preventing Distraction ● Move around the room ● Hold students accountable for their notetaking – Have them turn in notes for grading – Have them share Google Docs notes with you – Let them know they may have to bring their notes in front of the class
  • 9. Improving Notetaking ● Model and scaffold: Provide partial notes that students fill in—over time reduce the amount you're providing ● Share student notes – Share a student's notes anonymously and have the class critique/compare them – If you see a student taking good notes, put the notes in front of the class to discuss what's good about them
  • 10. Improving Notetaking ● Collaborate: Let students work in groups in shared Google docs; let the weaker notetakers learn from the stronger ● Compete: Offer praise or rewards for the best notes (group or individual)
  • 11. Notetaking App: Evernote ● Cloud-based: Notes are not tied to one machine ● Not collaborative: Notes ARE tied to one user account unless you pay for Premium ● Searchable: You can search for text ● Taggable: You can add keywords to your notes, and then view all the notes with keywords
  • 12. Notetaking App: Evernote ● Organizable: You can have multiple notebooks to keep related notes together ● Other notes: – Not exactly the same on all platforms (Win8 terrible, web-based better) – More features on tablet: ● Ties in to Penultimate and Skitch ● Allows photos and audio recording
  • 13. Notetaking in Google Docs ● You can use a word processing document for note taking ● Cloud-based ● Collaborative: You can share with others. Teacher could make a document and share with the entire class. ● Searchable ● Organizable: You can put into your own folders
  • 14. Notetaking in Google Docs ● Not as full-featured on tablets, but getting there ● Allows for chatting between editors, at least in web version – Back-channel communication, both good and bad
