Setting Up My Bullet Journal - Part 2 Why Analog in a Digital World?


DearREADERS,
When Tami Mize explained about her bullet journal, we discovered a bujo is not particularly a diary, more an organizational book where pages can be inserted, rearranged and handwritten with embellishments as you wish.Scholarly research indicates with handwritten notes, we absorb information more readily compared to using a computer to take notes.

"[...] there are two hypotheses to why note-taking is beneficial in the first place. The first idea is called the encoding hypothesis, which says that when a person is taking notes, "the processing that occurs" will improve "learning and retention." The second, called the external-storage hypothesis, is that you learn by being able to look back at your notes, or even the notes of other people."

 "Students who took handwritten notes generally outperformed students who typed their notes via computer, researchers at Princeton University and the University of California at Los Angeles found."

"Young students are often considered “digital natives,” with technology integrated into every aspect of their lives. While this can be an advantage in some situations, research has shown that the impact is not entirely positive."
