Are you technology savvy? Using a laptop to take down your important notes may not be a good idea after all. A study on a group of students was conducted where one group of students used their laptops to take notes while the other group of students used the old-fashioned notebook for the same task. A recall test was held for both the groups after a week. Students from the latter group fared far better than those who used their laptops. It proves that human brain is better able to process information, form associations and have a better recall when the notes were written by hand. Besides, laptops are a major cause of distractions for students.
