So, what exactly goes into sketchnoting? There are a few elements that one must think about and incorporate into their sketchnote, i.e. structure, icons/images, connectors, and typography are just a few of the elements. Before you even get started it is important to know that sketchnoting is personal. The elements that you pick are based on what works for you and your ability. Often times, it is the self-critiques that keep people from sketchnoting, so always keep in mind that this process is about your ability to critically think about information, and use images that are symbolic to your processing of that information. Perfection is not a target to aim towards.
To get a visual of what sketchnotes could look like here are some examples from Sylvia Duckworth.
For all Southern Nevada Ready 21 educators, please come out and get some hands-on practice with Sketchnoting on April 10th or April 11th.
