In our current nationwide pandemic of Covid-19 Coronavirus situation, many of us are concerned about sending our children into face-to-face classroom settings in school. Many school children are concerned too. We just don't know enough about this novel virus to know what effects it may have on young people, and if those effects translate to the parents, aunts, uncles, siblings, or grandparents.
This is why many of us are electing to keep our children home and to have them attend class online rather than in person. Many students themselves are making similar decisions. That makes having the ability to take effective, efficient, and productive notes in every class so very important, so they can compensate for not being there in person. We don't just want our children to succeed, we want them to excel in their education. And we want to do everything in our power to help them achieve that, while keeping them safe in perilous times.
That's where 'The New Cornell Notes' comes in. Cornell Notes has been recognized worldwide as the most effective study tool available. Originally developed as a paper-and-pencil method for taking and reviewing notes. The New Cornell Notes bring this tried-and-true methodology into the 21st Century. Using the electronic automation of the iPad, students can create a summary of the notes they're about to take, then enter "Cues" under which they start taking notes for a particular lecture or discussion topic. As the lecture or discussion moves on, the student adds more "Cues" as appropriate for each lecture discussion section. After the class is over, students can review their notes, modify their related "Cues" and "Summary", and began the process of studying by trying to recall the substance of each "Cue" without having to review the actual notes.
Adapting Cornell Notes for the iPad is a huge step forward. It brings the power of this highly effective note-taking system into the hands of every student, in an easy-to-use, simple way to take great notes, and a great, effective way to study.
Cornell Notes has been recognized for decades as a proven method for improving retention skills and achieving top grades. The New Cornell Notes expands on that, making it even easier and flexible to use than ever.
