Note Taking as a Generative Activity.
Peper, Richard J.; Mayer, Richard E.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v70 n4 p514-22 Aug 1978
Three experiments investigated the effects of note taking on "what is learned" by college undergraduates from videotaped lectures. The results suggest that note taking can result in a broader learning outcome, rather than just more learning overall, because an assimilative encoding process is encouraged. (Author/GDC)
