Jen's Favorite Notetaking Tips

We are so excited to release the next series of our prep with Jen how to videos. Jen teaches some really cool tips & techniques that I wish I had when I was in school. In this video, Jen covers the Cornell Method, Diagraming, Color Coding & using SCRIBZEE® to create more effective notes:

Cornell Method:

Jen covers the Cornell method of notetaking with Hamelins OPTIK PAPER TM notebooks. Have a ruler ready & divvy up your sheets of paper into these convenient sections for fast comprehension.

Diagraming:

Practice copying down the teacher’s diagram ‘as is’ in class. As soon as you get back, create an identical version of this diagram but blank out the content. You can then use a sticky note or index card to cover up the original diagram & quiz yourself while you fill in the content. This is a great way to connect visual learning with the teachers topics in a way that’s sure to help you remember on test day.

Color Coding:

Just like with symbols. Don’t over do it. Too much color is distracting, pick several colors to match each subject/theme & use consistently throughout a course or semester to boost recall.

SCRIBZEE®:

SCRIBZEE® is a great way to implement these techniques in & out of the classroom. You can scan your handwritten notes & index cards; share, sort, search & study all from your mobile device. To learn more about the amazing features this FREE App has to offer visit our YT page.
