Sketchnoting for Reflection

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

"he term sketchnoting describes a style of visual notetaking. During the session you will learn (or review) the basics of creating sketchnotes and then participate in an application time that provides you with an opportunity to reflect on what you have learned while at BLC16!

Be prepared to use sketchnoting as a form of:

* Note Taking: How can we summarize main ideas visually?
* Visual Thinking: How can we make thinking visual and visible to others?
* Content Creation: How can we take concepts and content, in order to be able to share visually to appeal to a larger audience
* Memory Aid: Doodling triggers memory after the event has passed. Visuals beat text when it comes to remembering
* Process Ideation: Documenting the formation of concepts and ideas
* Storytelling: Conveying of events through images and text
* Mind Mapping: Brainstorming and organizing of ideas, thoughts and connections

Please bring a sketch notebook and a pencil/marker or your iPad with an app such as Paper by FiftyThree in order to reflect visually.
