Today is International Sketchnote Day, a note-taking strategy in the form of drawing, sketching and writing at the same time. In fact, the purpose of this method is to make thinking visual, to demonstrate concepts by illustrating what is in our head. Is it relevant in education? Of course! There are also training courses offered to get started.
The sketch-note: a must in distance and classroom education
Sometimes we don't have enough words to express an idea, a concept or a learning. Making a sketch or using this method to take notes gives another way to see what students have remembered. Indeed, being able to draw elements of more complex concepts allows them to express their thoughts and also to make links. Since it is more difficult to account for learning done at home in distance education, a sketch-note can help the teacher to see where his student is doing other than with words. I use it often and consider it one more tip to have in a tool bag!
Here are some options for you to get started in this different world of note taking.
I will be the facilitator of a 3 hour workshop in the next CréaCamp SPRINT of February 19, which will allow you to see the foundations of this strategy and to begin your educational reflection on its use.
The training available on the Cadre21 platform concerning the Augmented language and Graphic organizers will allow you, from your home or your place of work, to perfect your knowledge. By identifying yourself with your school email, you have free access. You will then be able to obtain a badge for each level obtained.
