The study comes to us from Princeton University where a group of researchers has shown that taking notes with a PC is worse than doing it by hand. The results indicate that those who took handwritten notes performed better in the posttests. Not only did they do better, but they were also able to retain more information than the former.
With a sample of 67 subjects, the study shows us how the group made up of students who take notes by hand versus those who use the computer obtain better results in the tests they take later. The capacity of the former to synthesize is praised, while the latter tend more to replicate everything without paying attention to what is important.
