Focus 2 Achieve

Innovate Create Educate

I blog on Brain-Based Learning, Metacognition, EdTech, and Social-Emotional Learning. I am the author of the Crush School Series of Books, which help students understand how their brains process information and learn. I also wrote The Power of Three: How to Simplify Your Life to Amplify Your Personal and Professional Success, but be warned that it's meant for adults who want to thrive and are comfortable with four letter words.

Brain Hacking 303: Cornell Notes On Steroids

By Oskar Cymerman | @focus2achieve | BAm! Radio Network EdWords Blogger

If you are an educator, the topic of note taking has come up in your PLN more than once. Perhaps you are encouraged to use a certain method in your school. My school is an AVID school and I taught at other AVID schools, so the Cornell Note-Taking Method is something I've been exposed to a lot, have much experience with, and use with my students.

I believe that note-taking, regardless of how the notes are taken: on paper or digitally, is a tool that can allow students to become better, self-sufficient, and self-directed learners. Thus, my mission as a teacher is to not only teach chemistry, but to equip my students with learning tools and strategies that help them focus and achieve greater success in the k-12 classroom, college, and beyond. One such tool and strategy is the Cornell Notes On Steroids Template I created and use with my students. Check it out!

Not all of my students choose to use the template. A great majority of the ones that do find the template useful. They especially like the section for objectives and its organization. Summarizing is one of those high ROI activities I have to constantly stress, but guess what? IT'S WORTH IT. You can download the Cornell Notes On Steroids template and the Table of Contents for free.

I hope you find the Brain Hacking infographic above useful. You can access other Brain-Based Learning infographics I created by scrolling down my ED!Blog. Please share it with other educators, parents, and learners. I will feature the 9th Brain-Based Learning Infographic: "Brain Hacking 304" in my next NEWSLETTER, so please SIGN UP if you would like to receive some tips on how to help your students become better learners.

And Remember: You Have the Power to Change the World. Use it often.
