A laptop, tablet and smartphone, all tools for digital note-taking

Notetaking’ should actually be thought as ‘note creating’ or 'note making'. This is because good notes are unique creations that represent your thinking, learning, understanding and questioning – all of which are active processes. In contrast, ‘taking notes’ that represent exactly what you have heard or have read are actually poor for learning. While they are great for capturing an experience (like a lecture), they are actually poor notes for learning as they are developed passively and this does not require much thought.
