Learning to take notes is an essential skill. It involves critical thinking, analyzing and summarizing.

Some methods are better for in-the-moment learning, others for easier studying and others for organizing ideas.

There are various techniques that we can use with our students including giving them:


  • Outline method - simple method, based on bullet points and hierarchy, best on computer


  • Cornell method -  cornellsystem.pdf  - divided into cue column, notetaking and summary
  • Mind map https://coggle.it (free online tool) - visual notetaking system
  • flow method -  FlowBasedNotetaking.pdf  - not trying to transcribe but to learn during class. Create a mental image of subject.
  • write on slides - write on teacher's printout of slides
  • guided questions
  • graphic organizers
