Index of Objectives and Tasks
This task consists of saving, recording, noting, collecting or identifying information by saving them on an appropriate digital medium.
The saved information can be of different types: data, facts, observations, concepts, reflections, etc.
Saving information (often associated with note-taking) can be carried out in different contexts:
The digital medium used can have different forms or names: file, register, book, folder, journal, data bank, ticket, etc.
In an academic environment as well as in other professions, this task is often carried out on paper (note-taking in class, handwritten notes onto a folder, etc.). But a digital support provides several advantages and the trend in this domain suggests that we adapt our practices (digital files, data entry applications, the use of students’ mobile devices in class, etc.).
It should also be noted how interesting collaborative note taking is when doing teamwork.
Teachers may require from students a sample of the retained information.
Students are able to explain the logic behind their methodology for retaining information.
Elements of information retained by students are relevant and well classified. This information demonstrates that they (the students) have a good understanding of the components of the information that was processed according to the objectives of the assignment carried out.
The precision, clarity and accuracy of the recorded information are obvious essential criteria.
This task can be completed using:
When working in teams, several office tools offered by Google and Microsoft as well as other tools offered online can be useful when taking notes collaboratively because of the sharing possibilities they offer.
Here are some examples of practical applications of this task:
