The Sketchnote Handbook: The Illustrated Guide to Visual Note Taking

The Sketchnote handbook by Mike Rhode Top iPad Apps for Sketchnoting and Visual Notetaking December 30, 2014 Sketchnoting is the art of visual recording in which the sketchnoter draws on a multimodal set of tools to communicate their ideas. Unlike traditional note taking, sketchnoting is a primarily visual medium in that it foregrounds the visual element and highlights connections and hierarchies. Sketchnoting involves the blending of words with drawings, shapes, diagrams, and graphic organizers ( e.g arrows, pointers, bullet points..etc). In short, sketchnoting, as I like to think of it, is an advanced form of doodling. Here is a very good example of how a sketchnote looks like.

Do you simply wish to get them out of your head quickly and in an organized manner? Traditionally, you would open a Word or Text document, or take a sheet of paper and start writing in a linear fashion. This type of document quickly becomes overwhelming. By converting the list above into a hierarchy with a bit of formatting, you are making progress towards organizing your thoughts: However, even with a hierarchy like that, you quickly lose sight of the big picture. You always have too much information to look at, and most often you only get a partial view of the information. There is a better way: creating a mind map. A mind map is a simple hierarchical radial diagram. This article explains how to mind map in three little steps. By capturing what you have in your head, you make space for other thoughts. With mind mapping software, you can easily: You can focus in on a branch: A) Branch by Branch

Learn How To Sketchnote With The Penultimate App For The iPad I recently wrote an article about sketchnoting, an approach to notetaking using both words and drawings. Though many of the examples of sketchnotes you see online are produced by skilled designers and artists, it’s important to know that sketchnoting can be done by anyone. It’s an approach to notetaking that should be taught in schools. I’m not a graphic designer, and my drawing skills consist of stick figures and simple shapes. But I would say the tool that is helping me the most with sketchnoting is an iPad drawing app called Penultimate ($0.99). Why Penultimate? Penultimate has the look and size of those famous Moleskine notebooks. Though I recently purchased my first ever Moleskine notebook, I’m still apprehensive about using it. I’ve literally drawn and re-drawn, for example, an image of an eye, at least ten times, but thanks to Penultimate I was able to undo lines, and a few times totally erase or clear the page and start over.
