Overwhelming amounts of content to cover?
Traditional notetaking is boring.
Gone are the days of merely copying a bullet-pointed list of random facts from the overhead and placing them in a binder, never to be seen again. Today’s students thrive on visuals – whether that’s in our presentations or in their notes.
Plus, studies have shown that using visuals helps students (and adults!) retain information. Win-win!
