Taking Notes by Hand Benefits Recall, Researchers Find

Originally posted on New Images of Education:

Do people have better recall when they type notes, or when they write them?  A study cited in The Chronicle found that students who wrote their notes had much better recall.  It seems like the study was somewhat limited in its sampling, but still not a surprise.  “In a series of studies, the researchers provided students with laptops or with pen and paper to take notes. (The computers were disconnected from the Internet.) Students were then tested on how well they could recall facts and apply concepts. During the first test, students were told to “use their normal classroom note-taking strategy.” Some typed, and others wrote longhand. They were tested 30 minutes later.”

Petrus berbalik, melihat murid yang mencintai Yesus mengikuti Dia, yang juga bersandar di dada-Nya pada perjamuan Terakhir…Inilah murid yang memberikan kesaksian tentang hal-hal ini, dan telah menuliskannya, dan kami tahu bahwa kesaksiannya itu benar.”)

Sekolah iman bukanlah gerakan baris berbaris penuh kemenangan melainkan perjalanan sehari-hari yang ditandai dengan penderitaan dan kasih, pencobaan dan kesetiaan. Petrus, yang menjanjikan kesetiaan absolut, menyadari kepahitan dan penghinaan karena penyangkalan : pria arogan ini belajar pelajaran kerendahan hati dengan harga yang mahal. Petrus juga, harus belajar bahwa ia lemah dan membutuhkan pengampunan.

Ketika sikapnya berubah dan ia menyadari kebenaran akan hatinya…
