The National Survey of Computing, eLearning and Information Technology recently explored why innovative digital technologies that significantly improve students’ experience, engagement and attainment are often not implemented to their full potential.
Their conclusion? A lack of learning analytics and feedback limits their effectiveness in supporting student success.
Note-taking tools, like LiveScribe and Sonocent Audio Notetaker, are key for fostering stronger student independence compared to using peer notetakers. They give students with different learning challenges and styles a tool to capture, annotate, review and engage with key course information.
If you’re concerned about what note-taking technology to implement and how, you’re not alone. That’s why the Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) compared student opinions on note quality, frequency of use and study possibilities for Livescribe and Sonocent.
Learn from Emily Helft, Assistive Technology Specialist, as she explores VCU’s findings on the strengths of each note-taking tool in supporting Student Accessibility and Educational Opportunity.
You can then make informed decisions for your institution and implement technology to its full potential.
The session will also include a demonstration of how your students can use note-taking technology to capture and annotate audio in class, then revisit the material at their own pace to create richly detailed notes independently.
