Learn faster with a pen and paper!
Trying to learn something new? Jot down notes by hand rather than typing them – you’ll pick up on details more quickly and remember them longer.
Here’s why; The physical movements involved in putting pen to paper stimulate the learning centers of the brain, helping you more easily absorb the information, explains study coauthor Anne Mangen, Ph.D. who adds that these same centers are not activated by typing. Plus, writing things down takes longer than typing, which means you are focused on each word longer.
