How Handwriting Can Make You Smarter

Innovations in technology continue to influence education and have a major impact on how students study and learn.

However, there are still some benefits to taking the “old school” approach. For instance, taking notes by hand can actually have a lot of positive effects.

Research shows that handwriting increases focus, improves critical thinking, and even inspires creativity. Also, getting off the computer and writing notes by hand will help limit and prevent distractions associated with being online.

GetVoIP has put together an infographic that explains these benefits and more. The infographic also features proven note-taking techniques, including linear and non-linear note-taking, Mind Mapping, and the Cornell method. While laptops and mobile devices offer convenient options for note-taking, consider taking notes by hand every so often to keep your mind sharp.
