Notes and informal reflections written by hand

There are a few devices which capture hand written material digitally.  These include Digital Notepads in which you clip a normal writing pad onto a special clip board. You can then link the clip board to a computer and download everything that was written on the paper.

For a how to guide please follow the following link to see a video I created last year

Alternatively you could take a photo of any handwritten notes, many mobile phone cameras have a document setting which is useful for this.  The photo could then be added to your eportfolio
