Is a handwritten Zettelkasten better for conceptual understanding?
The majority of note taking these days is done digitally using a keyboard. Studies have shown that typed notes are not nearly as good as hand written notes for conceptual understanding. There seems to be a greater connection to the mind with handwriting than with typing.
Was part of Luhmann's success that he wrote his notes by hand thus creating a more solid link between his second and first brain? I've started trialling using my iPad Pro to handwrite my notes. I'm using Goodnotes and have created a 3x5 card template. As Goodnotes allows searching I can link notes via a unique ID. I'm also toying with Cardflow+ which already uses 3x5 cards and allows card linking.
I would love to hear some thoughts on this.
I would also love some thoughts on anyone maintaining a handwritten Zettelkasten.
Do you have any tips for creating a digital handwritten zettelkasten?
