In 2010, I went to my very first Tedx event in Auckland and learned about what I termed back then as "Korero through pictures". Korero means to talk (in Te Reo Maori, NZ's native language). You can read my thoughts here. Five years on I am seeing the notion of "sketchnotes" showing up in my Twitter Feed. This reminds me of a time back in 1998 when I was studying to be a teacher at Auckland College of Education and the lectures suggested reading up on note-taking back then I remember getting a book written by Tony Buzan on Mind Maps. So the new concept of sketchnotes is not so new after all but my twitter feed has prompted me to re-look at this method of taking notes.
Here is a video that I found (short enough for my attention span) that I watched to get an idea of "sketchnotes". I am about to walk into my next Post Graduate Diploma of Education (Literacy) paper this week and am hoping to have a handle on sketch notes by the end of the semester. Keep posted for updates. If you have any examples of sketch notes in education please feel free to share.
