More and more people have asked about the sketchnotes you see sprinkled throughout the Langwitches blog. I was thrilled when Felix Jacomino, organizer of Miami Device, asked me to do a Sketchnoting 101 workshop at the conference this upcoming Friday.
Here is the slidedeck, I have been working on and a few resources that have helped me wrap my mind around Sketchnoting FOR learning and develop a few skills and strategies along the way.
In a nutshell, I have learned 3 things, since I started dabbling with doodling
- You don’t have to be an artist ( I am not…)
- The process of thinking involved AS you are creating the sketchnote about a topic is “mindblowing”.
- Sketchnoting helps me process and digest a talk, wrap my mind around a large amount of information and organize my thoughts better. I am using sketchnoting as part of my learning process.
