All one needs to sketchnote is pen and paper. However, as visual notetaking apps become more popular,
Here is apresentation to introduce the concept and process of sketchnotes notetaking to students. Some students will find it superior to traditional notetaking, some will prefer the old ways. Giving them an option will help personalize their education.
The One Pager
Tired of traditional notes and summaries?
Students summarize in one page. It reminds me of Doodle Notes or Sketch notes (see embedded slideshow below) and is a great visual way to remember plus a great thinking exercise in summation to solidify learning and it also forces students to make critical decisions about what to include and why.
Try this when reviewing or even to quickly cover a topic or for a bit of arts and graphic design integration. Great way to introduce a bit of visual literacy as well.
Thanks to Ms. Adornato and her PD book discussion group for the one pager idea.
