Le Geste — the antidote to standardisation in visual thinking? — Visual Thinking in Business — Medium

Le Geste — the antidote to standardisation in visual thinking? — Visual Thinking in Business — Medium | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it
On a larger scale you can say that le geste stands for non-verbal communication. Like in the way someone points or pinches his chin with his hand to indicate he is thinking. By the way, it is no surprise that the stylish French lifestyle has a word for it.

How to summarize a dense book with a mind map | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it
Mind mapping is an excellent way to capture the key points of a book in a visual form. But what if the book you’re reading contains so much useful information that it’s hard to capture it all in a single mind map?

The Importance of Structure when Communicating with Visual Thinking — Visual Thinking in Business — Medium

The Importance of Structure when Communicating with Visual Thinking — Visual Thinking in Business — Medium | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it

[O]ften... people focus too much on the visuals, text and fancy containers but neglect the structure of their doodle/sketchnote/infodoodle [delete where appropriate] . This is a mistake. It is the structure that holds it all together and can really lift the peice. While you can get away with this when doodling for your self, when we are talking about communicating ideas this is essential.

[Weekender] Visual thinking pioneer stresses the power of drawing

[Weekender] Visual thinking pioneer stresses the power of drawing | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it

On Eun-ju, CEO of Social Frog, a South Korean start-up, was quick to name names that could help explain her specialty: Einstein, Da Vinci, Picasso and Jobs. She told The Korea Herald that she grouped these figures together because they represent the power of drawing. Though how much drawing played a part is arguable, it is widely thought that Einstein used visualization to come up with his theory of relativity....

In this article written by Jeong Hunny (hj257@heraldcorp.com), he notes that, "On likes to think of herself as the Christopher Columbus of visual thinking in Korea."


On's company, Social Frog, aims to “propagate the hidden wisdom” in visual thinking across Korea, offering classes in visual thinking in schools, corporations and other individual members interested in the much-coveted skills in the age of digital convergence and creativity-led business startups. 


Visual thinking transcends language, culture and generational differences. Considering the amazing amount and quality of technology created and produced in South Korea (Samsung and LG being the first to come to mind), it's good to see that this startup openly focuses on using the "soft skill" of drawing to  "“propagate the hidden wisdom” in visual thinking across Korea, offering classes in visual thinking in schools, corporations and other individual members interested in the much-coveted skills in the age of digital convergence and creativity-led business startups. 


It would be interesting to see if she develops techniques that be delivered everywhere to help people use visual thinking in every field.

"Education is essential to helping the world progress, both technologically and socially. Unfortunately for many, access to education is not always readily available. There are many theories about how education can be improved but the ability to broadcast and disseminate knowledge is one of the easiest steps we can incorporate to enhance the standards of global education."

Haunting Cave Paintings in Indonesia Are the Oldest in the World | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it
This stencil of a graceful, outstretched hand was discovered in a cave on an Indonesian island. And now we know that it's more than 39,900 years old. That makes it the oldest painting in the world, at least so far, and shows that humans in Asia developed symbolic expression at the same time as humans in Europe.

The Visual Linguist: New paper: The grammar of visual narratives

The Visual Linguist: New paper: The grammar of visual narratives | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it

In this paper, Neil Cohn "provides evidence that sequential images are processed by creating "constituents"— groupings of panels—rather than just "transitions" between the meanings of panels. Furthermore, disrupting these groupings in the "narrative grammar" of sequential images evokes the same brain responses as when you violate the grammar of sentences."

A picture is worth a thousand words | Greenbank | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it

Imagine a meeting where all the issues, debates, solutions or decisions that you and your team are discussing get captured, as you speak, in a large visual piece (about 3 meters wide by 1.40 meters tall) where you can easily identify each moment, what was said, agreed or argued.


Or even better! Imagine a workshop where what is being said, and projected and practiced, gets summarized in a visual element which, at the end of the programme, participants will receive a digital image by e-mail or any device you decide, to be inspired by, again and again, any time they need a reminder.

How to Teach Visual Thinking and Storytelling

How to Teach Visual Thinking and Storytelling | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it

I was recently asked to give some advice on how to go about teaching a Visual Thinking and Storytelling course and realized I had a lot to offer, but had never condensed it into a synopsis/example listing. So here is version 1.0 of my recommendations (version 2.0 will be coming soon)
I use the Rule from The Back of the Napkin to cast an overview of the kinds of ways we see and show information, but I also use a lot of ideas from service design thinking to engage students with ideas about storytelling and diagraming out problems.

These Gorgeous iPad Notes Could Lead to the Paperless Classroom | THE Journal

These Gorgeous iPad Notes Could Lead to the Paperless Classroom | THE Journal | Visual Thinking | Scoop.it

Vancouver teacher Brad Ovenell-Carter has been doodling notes in Moleskine notebooks at conferences for a while, causing heads to turn. People used to ask him for copies and he would snap a photo and send it to them.

 

When the iPad came along, Ovenell-Carter migrated his "sketch-notes" to his tablet, using a stylus to draw into an App called Paper (he preferred its simplicity to higher-end tools for graphic designers). That’s when he became an exemplar for the growing sub-culture of paperless learners, doodlers, iPad-only learners, live-scribers or — his personal favorite — "sketch-noters." Their craft raises new questions about the future of learning and even communication.

Dave Wood's curator insight, November 7, 5:21 PM

Templates are one of the key tools of visual coaching. A key piece of advice in the final part of this excellent series is to be cautious about templates reducing flexibility. The writer says,  "For this reason I prefer not to use ready printed or pre-prepared charts, but, rather have template designs committed to memory or recorded in a notebook that I can then reproduce as I need them."  This is a good caution and means creating  lots of opportunities to experiment with the various templates so when you do use them you can do so r seamlessly.  Personally I have had great success using pre-prepared charts.  I have had to change tack when the need arose.
