One of the problems for students and business people alike is taking good notes, whether they are for revision or to make sure you have an accurate record of something. Should you be a student, good notes are imperative for revision and should be in a concise format. If you are in business, safekeeping accurate notes of what was said in a conference could be worth a lot of money! The The problem is that notes can easily become mislaid unless you put them somewhere safe straightaway. This is where Digital Note Takers are fast becoming popular across the world, but why?
To be able to record accurately certainly aids the note-taker by serving as a memory device for various reasons: a) what they heard/saw are more easily recalled and b) being able to record an mmediate thought on the particular subject matter. The mere act of taking notes will increase concentration and attention and will force the information to be processed at a deeper level and to be combined with other previously known information. Psychologists will tell you this will be of great benefit in the process of memorising the information.
While for some it may be found that taking notes is distracting, that you can scribble down even quick notes digitally aids the retrieval process and any future documentation that may need to be produced.
