Documentation OF/FOR/AS Learning

Documentation OF/FOR/AS Learning

Documentation as a teacher, as a student, as learners can take on many different forms. In an effort to make my thinking and conversations with Andrea Hernandez, Silvana Meneghini, Chic Foote and Angela Stockman around the differences visible, I created the visuals below.

My PROCESS was/is/will be:
Thinking > Conversation > Visual (3 versions) > Sharing > (hopefully getting) Feedback > Revisions

Sitting on a park bench in Washington, DC, brainstorming, mindmapping, connecting, re-thinking…

Taking the notes, taken with paper/pen, using my iPhone and PicCollage app, my thoughts get organized a little better, a little less messy…

From the iPhone app, I take the content into Canva and create the visual below to share on this blog…

…and then disseminate on Twitter…

Now, it is in YOUR hands to continue the process of documentation and enter a feedback loop. Does the above make sense to you in terms of documentation of/for/as learning? Do you need clarification? Do you have push back? Additions? Added value? I challenge you to not only look at the information, but actively participate in the process of Documentation AS Learning.
