“For Your Unique Notes”
Why I Handwrite
By Erin Harty aka Boone Terwilliger

    This question has a somewhat scientific answer. When you write by hand, such as when you take notes for a lecture, your retention rate is much better than when you type. Recent research shows this. The theory is that when you write, you partially process information to get the gist of what you’re hearing – you’re on the spot analyzing the most important things. One exception is a highly technical material that is currently indecipherable by the brain. Then entering the details can be helpful as it is much faster than writing CV management in UK. Audio backup is also available. Overall, the trend toward teaching students handwriting is unfortunate. Depending on the situation and strengths, having more than one reminder method is a great benefit.
