Study Skills 1: Research and Note-taking Skills

This event is the first of a 3-part series focusing on assistive technology for study skills. Researching and taking notes is an important activity central to the academic lives of many teens and adults. This webinar for parents begins with a discussion of the purpose of note-taking and useful strategies to employ. Tools include a range of technology supports for taking notes while listening to information and instruction, taking notes while reading, and organizing the information. Demonstrations will include a smart pen, audio recording apps, research tools, and mind mapping.

This webinar is presented by Tara Bruss and Sarah Giffen-Hunter, Assistive Technology Specialists at PACER’s Simon Technology Center in Minnesota. They both specialize in helping teens and adults find the tools to help them be successful in high school, college, and employment.
