Nowadays, however, the use of computers is replacing the traditional pencil-and-paper methodology. The present study aims to identify the advantages and disadvantages associated with the use of computer (typing) and pencil-and-paper (handwriting) for taking notes by college students.

Karin Perry has been in education for over twenty years. She started her career as a sign language interpreter, but soon realized she wanted to be more involved in the classroom and went back to get her Elementary Education degree and started teaching fifth grade. She then continued her journey by getting a Master’s of Library and Information Science from The University of Oklahoma and worked as an elementary school librarian and then a middle school librarian. It was during her time working at the middle school that she started work on her Ph.D. and in 2010 she received her doctorate in Instructional Leadership and Academic Curriculum, also from The University of Oklahoma. Karin currently is Associate Professor and Assistant Chair of the Library Science Department at Sam Houston State University and has the pleasure of working with her co-author, Holly Weimar. Karin has always been a doodler and colorer. She’s had a long-time obsession with pens, markers, and crayons. Once introduced to sketchnoting she took to it like a duck does to water. When she isn’t working, you’ll find Karin reading or drawing/lettering. She lives with her husband of over twenty years, a Chihuahua with major attitude, a stray cat that showed up one day and never left, and fifteen Longhorns.

 

 
 
 
 
 

Holly Weimar has been an ESL teacher, kindergarten teacher, and school librarian. She currently is Associate Professor and Chair of the Library Science Department at Sam Houston State University. She earned her doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction from the University of Houston. She has always been an obsessive note taker. When Mary Ann Bell shared with her the idea of sketchnoting, she immediately had to try it out and has been sketchnoting since that time. She frequents local hobby, art supply, and office supply stores, often with Karin, looking for new sketchnoting pens, pencils, and notebooks. Texas has always been her home although she has enjoyed many summers in Maine. She is married to her high school sweetheart. They have two sons who are now grown, one with a family of his own. When she is not sketchnoting or working, you can find her playing with her two grandsons.
