One of the great benefits of using a laptop for research is to have access to the Internet to learn more about a topic. However, be sure to use only reliable sources of information.
Whether you are writing your notes in class or handwriting them, you are more likely to write them quickly, making them look cluttered or incomplete. Take time to write your notes after school in a text editor. Use complete sentences and correct grammar, then check these notes as you prepare for questions and tests.
Nowadays, most educators want you to write down any important research papers before you take them. It is important to write articles because they are easy to read even if you do not ask. In fact, writing your articles can be a little quicker, so you have more time for the things you love!
• Writing articles is helpful for editing because it makes it easier to make changes without having to restart.
Your teacher can use software to look at or listen to past lessons, learn more about a topic, ask questions, practice tests, and so on. Use them if you can!
• You can also download your own apps to learn more about the topic. For example, if you are learning Spanish, you can use programs like Rosetta Stone to learn the language.
If there is something in your textbook or notes that you do not understand, or there is a topic for which you need more information, try emailing your teacher or professor. You can ask them if they have any other means of communication, such as a school-wide messaging app.
• You can use apps like Google Hangouts or Skype to create study groups with your classmates.
