Join us for an examination of the principles of sketchnoting—visual note taking—and find out how these practices can offer a transformation in the way you and your students learn. There is emerging evidence that combining visuals with text in creative and thoughtful ways offers many of us better retention of information, greater understanding of the subject matter, and a deeper focus on the main points. This will be a very hands-on opportunity with lots of time devoted to practicing the essential elements of a sketchnote, while also learning about why this technique can be so effective. There is no need to be artistic, but you will need to bring your creative energy. Sketchnoting can be used in the classroom, the meeting room, at conferences, and for travel or other experiences. If you are learning and sharing information, you can sketchnote it.
