Sketchnotes & Visual Thinking: A Different Way of Note-taking | leading and learning | Scoop.it

This post provides a look at the "basics of sketchnoting" which you might think of as visual note-taking. Combine sketches and images, and you hvae sketchnoting, which is different than "graphic facilitation" ("one person listend to a group and graphically represents the key points of the discussion").

The post discusses note-taking in school today (which of often linear) and that students have little "interaction or engagement with the material." Sketchnoting requires "listening, thinking, and visualizing at the same time." For more information click through to the article.

How can we give our at-risk readers access to more complex texts?"
