Unlike most note taking strategies, taking smart notes forces you to elaborate on your ideas and enhance your understanding of what you’ve learned by rewriting your notes in your own words.
Smart notes are a technique I use to mark up my notes and improve my ability to retain and understand the information. Smart Notes are digital shorthand: take a note, leave a piece of information as a Smart Note, and refer back to the note many times in the future to recall what you’ve learned.
Smart notes enable you to produce a comprehensive record of the content you want to remember and share with others as well. Learn how in the video below.
