Engage with Sketchnoting: Doodle Your Way to Better Retention

Login to watch this content

About this talk

Studies show that doodling can lead to better comprehension, retention, and engagement when students are learning. Participants will be doodlers throughout the session, partaking in doodling challenges designed to help them understand how to create a culture of doodling in classrooms whether virtual, face to face or hybrid. In addition, we will explore the research behind sketchnoting and learn how to effectively use this strategy with students and staff to support learning, student agency, accessibility, differentiation, and engagement.

Please have handy: Something to write with (colorful writing utensils are optional), several pieces of something to write on (copy paper, graph paper, back side of wrapping paper, junk mail, index cards, cardboard box pieces...) a surface to work on.

Come ready to sketch and share!
