Sketchnoting is a great way to take notes, share information, and deliver instruction. Also known as visual note-taking, it is also an activity that K-12 students can fall into effortlessly. Unlike adults, they have fewer fears about trying to draw and then sharing their creations. Humans are born with a desire to create, and too often this side of students' development is given short shrift in today's intense testing environment. After a brief introduction explaining sketchnoting, Mary Ann Bell shares successful projects and ideas for using it with PK-12 students. She also shares recent work done by kids that demonstrates ways to use sketchnoting in school for teachers and librarians. Come and gain an understanding of what sketchnoting entails, along with some good ideas for using it with your students.
