How to take Cornell notes with Sonocent Audio Notetaker
Are your students lecture notes truly useful come revision time? Or are they left staring blankly at illegible scribblings which seem to miss out lots of important information?
A proven way for your students to master their subject material ahead of exams is to take Cornell notes.
Here, the student summarises what they hear during the lecture in their own words. The process of summarising alone deepens their understanding.
After the lecture, the student revisits their notes, writing questions alongside their summaries. During revision, these questions act as memory triggers, aiding recall.
Why use our software to take Cornell notes?
The Sonocent Audio Notetaker workspace includes areas where your students can type the summaries and questions that form Cornell notes.
But, in addition, they will have a full recording of the lecture to refer to, which is visualised as editable chunks.
This way, they can record themselves speaking on a topic, and then listen back to the original lecture recording to check that they have remembered everything.
In the short video below, we walk you through each step of taking Cornell notes with Audio Notetaker.
It is an interactive way of applying the Cornell technique that could actually make revision fun... Well, almost.
