Mobile Note Taking - High tech vs low school
I am a big proponent of limiting the use of technology in my life. One of the big advantages I have in my life is: I don't own a smartphone. Never had and probably never will. But I noticed that quite many use smartphones for mobile note taking. I'd like to start a discussion about the pros and cons of various note taking devices.
I will collect the important arguments.
LET'S GO TO WAR!!!!!! (Ok, a bit over the top. Still had to do it.)
- A physical note book looks way cooler.
- The usage of pen and pencil makes it very easy to draw diagrams and illustrations.
- It is like immutable data in the functional programming paradigm! dbarends
- physical notes are far easier to remember / spot among hundreds of others, just because they are not virtual and thus are unique in more ways physical notes will ever be able to be rene
- Typing encourages you to copy what you hear (and maybe see), which kind of lets the information bypass your brain/memory. Writing by hand forces you to make sense of what you hear and condense it, focus on what's really important, and express it in your own words, short-forms, and symbols, facilitating existing associations in your mind.rene
