Well, check out Evernote:
Here's a nice article that gives a quick overview...but let's think beyond that to the implications for learning:
- One of the best ways to trigger memory is through activation of episodic memory, which has to do with place (either virtual or real);
- All kinds of memory can be triggered by episodes.
- Generally, up to 80% of what we learn is captured visually.
- Generally, another 10-15% of what we learn is captured through hearing.
Hmmm...I really do need an iPhone. I wonder if, as people get older if it might be considered a medical device to assist with memory. "There's an app for that:" it's called Evernote.
