In Art I we learned about Sketchnotes, or visual notetaking. This approach to taking notes is a creative way for a student to create their own graphic organizer as they are listening. There are strategies to show the structure of a lecture and visual ways to show hierarchies and relationships.
We watched the Sketchnotes Handbook video by master sketchnoter Mike Rohde and students made their own sketchnotes of concepts and strategies he presented. The next step is to take sketchnotes LIVE in class with a teacher who is okay with it. Our first live sketchnoter's work is at the bottom of this post. Awesome! I think we have some new recruits for the Sketchnote Army!
