Introducing “An Educator’s Guide to Sketchnoting” Whenever I tell my teacher friends about my experiments here with visual note taking, most get excited for me, many end up trying out sketchnoting for themselves, and a number of them also ask about how to incorporate this skill into the classroom. To help teachers expose their students to the idea of sketchnoting, I have decided to write a guide that provides an overview of sketchnoting, explains how it can be used as a powerful learning tool, and provide suggestions for how to incorporate the teaching of this skill into classroom activities. When children first learn to write, the idea of combining words and pictures comes naturally. With time and rigid education practices, however, we lose that freedom. The activities in this guide will be designed to give that freedom back to students of all ages.
