Role and efficacy of hand "scribing" in learning

Is there any research either supporting or negating the importance of manual symbol making in learning?

I ain't much on that book learnin'

I am pretty terrible when it comes to picking up technology books with the desire to learn about something. I always lose steam at some point. I am asking for tips/tricks/disciplines to get better, especially if you've noticed a difficulty doing this and turned yourself around.
