It is easier to explain it with a comparison.Sprinters and marathoners are athletes. The first ones run 42 kilometers long and the second ones 100 meters long, but they could never switch competitions. They have completely different physical characteristics.The marathoner has to be light because he must carry the weight of his own body for 42 km. On the other hand the sprinter has to be all muscles because he needs a good balance between arms and legs from the start and throughout all the race.One is resistance, the other one is explosive power.What has this to do with the different types of
Graphic facilitation is Agile. Working Agile and graphic facilitation are processes about adaptability, speed and coordination.
Dave Wood's insight:
I'm re-scooping this because its such a good article from Sam Bradd. The same principles apply whether you're recording an event, group or individual sessions. "Because it’s my job as a visual facilitator to help groups be successful by valuing process over the visual product."
You can front end load the process through planning and preparation.
That creates the space for adaptability, speed and coordination. Its not about getting it perfect.

Dave Wood's insight:
Using visuals to communicate the big picture of a business strategy. It all starts with skillful questioning and graphically recording the responses. So powerful for developing clarity through shared understanding.
The first storyboards for Close Encounters of the Third Kind were drawn by Steven Spielberg, who used stick figures. Artist Edward Carlson penciled his vision for Seattle’s Space Needle on a napkin in a coffee house. The inventors of Super Mario Brothers designed their video game, square by square, on graph paper.
Complex ideas begin as simple drawings. And data-visualization—the use of visual tools to analyze and present information— is no exception.
Every now and then, when I am scribing at a conference or event, I’ll hear a whisper behind me that goes something like this: “Wow, that’s really cool! Do you do this for a living?” Why yes, it is. And yes, I do.
Dave Wood's insight:
These objections mentioned are so common
“It’s not the way we have worked in the past.”“In meetings, we need detailed notes, not just nice pictures.”And the killer: “We use a lot of PowerPoint instead.”
This article resonated with me because of a recent experience.
I taught a group of colleagues basic visual facilitation skills about 18 months ago. It was enthusiastically received and some went on to apply the skills in low key ways. Text based notes and bullet point powerpoint presentations were still the norm.
Couple of days ago I saw one of that group and she was excited to share how she had graphically recorded a planning session for a major change initiative the organization is working through. The chart was now on the wall of the project team and she couldn't be more proud. Especially the degree of engagement it generated. Great feeling to go down with her to see it share her excitement.
18 months in the gestation but well worth the wait......
Jackie Gerstein proposes an experiential flipped classroom learning model where she believes there a great opportunity to change the predominant didactic model of education that is especially prevalent in upper elementary through graduate school education.
"UDL is a strategy, a process that provides opportunities for all students, not just those with special needs (but I believe all learners have special needs), to be successful learners. This is the same goal for the flipped classroom model designed as an experiential learning cycle.
This model has experiential learning at the core of the learning process with the content videos supporting the learning rather than being the core or primary instructional piece. Experiential learning is the process of making meaning from direct experience.. Simply put, experiential learning is learning from experience. Experiential learning can be a highly effective educational method[ It engages the learner at a more personal level by addressing the needs and wants of the individual. For experiential learning to be truly effective, it should employ the whole learning wheel, from goal setting, to experimenting and observing, to reviewing, and finally action planning. This complete process allows one to learn new skills, new attitudes or even entirely new ways of thinking. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Experiential_learning)"
Thank you Jackie for your insight in creating this model where all learners can experience success!
When asked what my first language is, I often answer, “visual.” I think in images, prefer to be taught through images, and like to express what I know through images. I find it disconcerting that as learners progress to the higher grades, there is less use of images and visuals to teach concepts.
The power of the use of vision for learning is emphasized by developmental molecular biologist, John Medina, where in his publication, Brain Rules, he states:
