Sketchnoting Journey



Today is the first time I will be trying to sketch note. I honestly don’t know what sketchnoting means (yet). I wonder if this is something I may be good at? I like to doodle but I’m not very good at drawing. My students and I often make fun of my drawings when I try to illustrate things on the board for them.

Let’s see what this is all about.

Hmm, I thought I would enjoy sketching more. I felt rushed to get the information down so I didn’t have the opportunity to make it look “pretty”. I’m going to try using sketchnote again but with less information to document and more time available to work on it. I think I may like it more.

    I make many connections to your feelings you’ve shared on this post. I love the attitude you’ve portrayed with wanting to try again and in a different environment on a different focus. Once you find a groove on your own, I’d love to see and hear an update! 🙂

    I can’t wait to see if your feelings about sketchnoting will change with more time, not live, but maybe with an article, a chapter in a book or a video, that you can pause, rewind, forward and return to at a later time to continue the sketchnote.
    The documentation and the reflective comparison should be an interesting perspective…

    Along these lines… what connections to your feelings about being “rushed” can you connect to the classroom, when so many times students are asked to finish before the bell rings, before the rest of the class is ready to move, when the lesson or unit is over or timed tests/quizzes/exams?

    Have your thoughts about this changed over time? Did Silvia’s note about putting yourself in your students’ shoes when asked to do something they don’t enjoy and/or don’t feel confident resonate or lead to anything?
