In the LTHEChat this week we would like to explore the role of the traditional student skills of note taking and critical reading. Software tools and mobile apps have been developed to allow rapid and easy access to multiple texts. Sophisticated search tools can compile a comprehensive set of resources. Lecture capture systems allow students to revisit difficult concepts. With these technologies so widely available, is note taking, and are critical reading skills, still key to student learning? And if so, how can we use the tools available to assist.
This week’s LTHEChat is lead by Sue Lee and Dr Lydia Arnold.
