Named for Leonardo DaVinci, this method is very similar to the Cornell Method, but uses single sheets of paper (not bound in a notebook), and it reverses the measurements on the page. Thus, the left-hand side, the Note Taking Area is 6 inches, the right-hand side, the Cue Area is 2.5 inches, and a 2 inch Summary Area at the bottom of the page. But, he also included a title or heading at the top of the page. The DaVinci Method uses an illustration that is often centered on the left-hand side (large part) of the page. Illustrations are key to this method.
Some things to consider for this method, which, it is said, integrate the right- and left-brains.
- Put a heading on the page
- Doodle an image
- Insert keywords and more doodles
- Radiate arms from the map connecting the keywords to the central image
- Continue or stop
