Whether it is typing or handwriting, it continues to be one of the main areas of interest for all the people who engage in the learning.
We continue to see people who handwrite and make use of visual sketching and write their thoughts in the physical notebook or digital notebook, that learning is much more effective, in particular for handling those subjects and linking subject knowledge and applying them into other related areas. Some said it due to make use of active learning, we learning better what we also being active in make sense for what we learn, whether write down questions, keyword, insight and create link for different topics in the visual way, and found out what the area need further research and get more supporting reading or information.
In the modern day, most of the learning content already digitized, chance of you need to retyping to get the content is highly no possible for most of the case, you can either snapshot a photo, OCR the text or just using digital color pen or highlighter to highlight the text directly over the raw learning material. Simply just typing for what you saw instead of making sense of what you really read and digesting them for your own, that is, internalizing the learning lesson and applying it to your own situation, that is more matter. Without doubt, simply copy and paste or semi typing, the end result will be less effective compared with your own development and authoring note that you make what you learn or study. Since it is much easier to review it and it being digested, and consider part of your very own working knowledge.
Off course, in the modern world, we are entry into digital economy and digitalization is where the future is, but it do not prohibit us to continue write and sketch notes in visual manner, with simple illustration, drawing and make use of color and link the notes or highlight some text, we can even snapshot it into digital image for continue processing it, or for replace the entire process into digital mean, make use of digital tablet and digital pencil, provide the best for the both worlds, typing in the both hand is always faster than you write notes by hand, but ultimately each learner need to find what work best from their own learning style, whether in the old fashion make use of warm media like paper and pencil or digital, or mix of both.
