Sketchnoting in the Classroom
Primary & Post-Primary
Sketchnoting is an innovative tool that taps into our intuitive ability to read images.
A text-heavy approach to learning can slow students down. Using a mix of visual elements (images, lettering, arrows etc), sketchnoting activates both sides of the brain and triggers active learning, helping students to get the maximum amount from classes and study time.
Classes can be customised to suit particular needs. Typical Learning Outcomes include:
- How to draw the fundamental sketchnote elements: icons, stick figures, lettering, banners etc.
- Using sketchnotes to process complex information
- Brain-mapping multiple information strands for assignments
- Sketchnoting to generate ideas for projects
- Subject-specific sketchnotes inlcuding Science / Languages / Literature / History / Geography
- Online or in-person (if guidelines allow)
- Sessions can be delivered as one-off events, or as a series of sessions to allow for more in-depth exploration
- Custom sessions for Teachers (CPD)
- Custom sessions for Exam Year students
- Can be used across all subjects
- Can be adapted for all ages (Primary and Post-Primary)
No art skills necessary. Everyone can sketchnote!
