onlinefacilitation - Visual Work and Thinking "Every child is an artist. Theproblem is how to remain an artist once we grow up." - Pablo Picasso Visual practices can enrich our work. This page is a loosely organized overview of visual practices in two related contexts, graphic recording and graphic facilitation. If you are interested in more about the use of visual practices in facilitation, I'm building a related page here: Visual Facilitation Practices What is Graphic Recording? Graphic recording at its core is visually capturing what is happening in a group or presentation. What is Graphic or Visual Facilitation? Graphic or Visual Facilitation is the intentional use of visual practices, including drawing by an individual or by members of the group to support the group's process. How others have described this set of practices Chip Walter's animated white board description How does this relate to the larger set of thinking around visual thinking?

2013 Visual Thinking & Literacy Conference | Saturday, April 13, 2013 in Birmingham, Michigan NTEN Webinar Reflections and Resources: The Unanticipated Benefits of Content Curation Yesterday, I did a free NTEN Webinar called “The Unanticipated Benefits of Content Curation: Reducing Information Overload” based on my feature article in the NTEN Change Journal in June with the same title. (You can register and download the issue here for free and listen to the webinar recording here) The main idea is that good curation skills can build staff expertise and avoid the pain of information overload. I covered the basics of content curation, how it differs from social sharing, the art and practice of curation, a frameworks to get started, examples of nonprofits using curation, the tools, and some techniques for minimizing information overload and managing attention. I pulled together a curated summary of the tweets and resources on Storify that you can view here. With over 600 people registered for the Webinar, it was hard to answer all the questions as the chat stream just flew by and the 90 minutes was up before we knew it. A good curator also knows their audience.

Visual Thinking Art Visualization as Process, Not Output - Jer Thorp by Jer Thorp | 8:00 AM April 3, 2013 “Please make me a visualization.” I get a lot of emails that say this or some variation of it. They tend to make me think of other requests that could be made in the same form, like: “Please make me a roast beef sandwich.” Or: “Please make me a scale model of the Eiffel Tower.” Roast beef sandwiches and scale models of the Eiffel Tower, in these sentences, are common nouns. “Please visualize our data.” The nice thing about this sentence is that it may result in many things. In 2009, I was asked by Jake Barton to design an algorithm that would place the nearly 3,000 names of victims on the 9/11 memorial in Manhattan in specific places, so that certain names could be near each other, per the wishes of their next-of-kin. The first step, then, was to get some idea of the scale and peculiarities of this particular problem. A visualization of the victim names and requested adjacencies for the 9/11 Memorial. None of these is meant for public consumption.
What I Made The Difference: Sketch Notes, Graphic Recording and Graphic Facilitation-Jeannel King - Big Picture SolutionsJeannel King – Big Picture Solutions Learning the Lingo As visual practices such as sketch noting, graphic recording, and graphic facilitation become more…well, visible to the public, so does the confusion around the terms we visual practitioners use to describe our work. This confusion is understandable. So, in an attempt to standardize our language – and to help you look super-intelligent in front of your friends and colleagues – here’s a handy-dandy (and assuredly imperfect) chart that lays out the basic differences amongst three increasingly-common terms: A Bit More Information On Each Sketch Notes Sketch notes in my sketchbook If you want someone in the audience to visually capture the content and insights from your event, then you’re looking for someone to create sketch notes .
