    I`d say stupid and lazy. While physically taking notes you are already beginning to review the material. I can understand phones allowed for contact with parents but there is no way (if I were a teacher which thank goodness I am not!) I would allow this in my class.

    The smartest thing to do would be for the teacher to make it a digital-format that is downloadable. Duuuuurrrrr

    I had a Political Geography prof who filled the chalkboard with abbreviations: AG > k/gh/e (UG)+ p,i,w (2) sek. vs. TB and such. Arrows and circles all over the place. He made sense if you listened closely, but taking notes from this mess was completely hopeless. Photographing would have been even worse!

    My favorite are the people that force the teacher to slow down or back up to copy/take a picture of the slides that he already put on blackboard before the class.

    I took pictures of the plastic models in anatomy & physiology.. It helped me a lot for our lab practical..As for our notes, our professor made the slides he used for the lessons available online..

    The point of note taking was to obtain the info, while renforcing it with writing said info.

    see one of the benefits of copying down notes is that you actually learn what it is youre copying out. or at least you should be. if youre one of those people who doesnt pay attention to what theyre copying and just copying the words, you are a failed human being.

    Good luck trying to tell todays kids they need to know anything, they`ll just say that`s what Google and Wikipedia is for, no need to know anything you can look up on your cell phone. Spoiled brats.

    "Good luck trying to tell todays kids they need to know anything, they`ll just say that`s what Google and Wikipedia is for, no need to know anything you can look up on your cell phone. Spoiled brats."

    - It shouldn`t be about "knowing" stuff, but about knowing how to use it. To be against things like a cell phone would be like being against a scientist or banker using a calculator.

    Not sure if this specific incident is fake or not, but it is common as hell here (Sweden). Myself, I don`t have a phone capable of taking pictures (I KNOW! Personal choice, it will only cost me 15 bucks to replace), but this, as a phenomenon is very real.

    I am slightly anal retentive and a mess up so to have that reference to catalog is heaven! It isn`t my notes. Those have to be handwritten or recorded then transcribed to text in a very specific format I learned when the internet didn`t exist.

    I don`t think it`s dumb exactly. It`s just that a notebook doesn`t run out of battery, or get stolen. you don`t have to mess around with different formats, and It`s hard drive/memory card is not going to fail. I`ve always found that I retain information better if I write it out a few times.

    On the other hand, we were encouraged to learn mathematics without a calculator because "you won`t always have access to one" the calculator on my phone can do more than the one i had in year 9 and it didn`t cost me 60 bucks.

    Don`t have to use our phones. We have "smartboards" that you can write on like a chalkboard. It looks like a whiteboard actually. When you`re done, you can save it as a pdf and upload to whatever site your school uses for course management. I don`t know about anyone else but I retain more when I can just sit and listen than when I`m rote copying randomness down. I can sit and listen and then review the notes later. Also convenient if you miss a day. No bugging friends or teachers for missing notes.
