For my data assignment, I am planning on collecting my own data. I want to get perspectives from students, parents, and teachers on preference and retention rates regarding note taking. I will be asking questions regarding the debate on which is better, taking notes by hand or digitally.
I will be doing an online survey and distributing it with a link. To reach college students I will be posting it on facebook and sharing it within my fraternity. To reach parents I will ask my mom to share it on her facebook and with her friends. Reaching teachers may be more limited, but I plan on emailing some of my past professors and teachers from high school to fill it out.
This is a very controversial debate that has a bunch of research leaning both ways.
