TTMIK Talk: Note-taking – Analog or Digital?


What is your favorite way of taking notes? Do you prefer digital or analog? Do you usually like to take notes on notebooks with a pen like Seokjin does? Or do you like to take notes on your phone like Hyojin and Kyeong-eun does?

여러분은 메모를 할 때, 핸드폰이나 태블릿 PC 같은 디지털 기기를 사용하는 걸 좋아하세요, 아니면 손으로 직접 노트에 글을 쓰는 걸 더 좋아하세요?

The subtitles are available both in Korean and English for this video. Be sure to check the CC button in the YouTube video player to see the subtitles. : )

TTMIK Talk: Note-taking – Analog or Digital?

    I prefer writing my notes! This is because I remember better by going through everything and writing them. When I record digitally I don’t remember as well because the information isn’t passing through my mind.

    I think that paper and pen are more convenient. I only take notes during class, church, and TTMIK^^, so I don’t have to carry them around any where. I would totally get a notebook like Seokjin’s, because for some reason, note taking on a phone just doesn’t seem natural.

      Ne , paper and pen seem more useful to me , beside it helps me to remember things , anyway there isn’t that much notes important to write down ^^

  • I have my phone, my tablet and I use paper notes. I use paper notes mostly for long term studying, my tablet for almost everything else, and my phone on the go. I find that the combination of everything seems to work a bit better for me. Also, you can sync it with EVERYTHING now. So that’s REALLY handy.

    Also, IPADs and IPhones and Smartphones are all very expensive! Over $300! I don’t hav that kind of money~ I have 86 cents notebooks <3

      I also prefer paper and pen but not because of price (btw they can also be really expensive :p).

      Like a lot of people have mentioned it is easier to remember and much easier to make the notes colourful. Plus with paper I can use sticky notes and I love using sticky notes <3

  • I prefer digital! Although I haven’t found an app that I really like that I can sync with my computer. I am not an Apple person ㅋㅋㅋ
    With digital you can easily organize different notes into different folders and you can add pictures or sounds or links easily.
    You’re notes are also a lot more searchable!

    I do use pen and paper if I’m learning something though like 한국어.

    I write everything in my notebook.. I find tablets/phones difficult to use for note taking..

  • You guys should talk about Korean night life, or fashion trends, or where people live in big cities, or social culture, or somthing… idk 🙂

      I think so!!!!!

  • BENZ

    I really like this video!!!!!!
    Thank you for being hard-working!
    Just really loved the subtitles of both English and Korean!!
    It really helps me improve a lot! (But it’d be more helpful if both of them could appear simultaneously)

    I’m a 13 year old girl and I like using notebooks… I like the smell of the paper and how your pen glides on it… and all of the colorful pens! I like using sticky notes, too!

  • Jeferry

    I’d like to save it in computer laptop or harddisk 😀
    and sometimes write it on paper too !

  • shinbi

    i prefer to take notes in my notebook .

  • rasminsu

    nothing can be equal to taking notes on paper, because it’s not with you all the time. you can never feel stressed about it, but i think all that Seokjin is missing is a fountain pen.
