Today’s learners no longer need to be limited to the written or printed word when externalizing ideas. To some degree, however, educational systems seem to drive hand-drawn imagery and graphical representations out of the acceptable range of choices for expression. With iPad, it is possible to visualize and share complexity by engaging in a process known as sketchnoting in both teaching and learning. Our multi-touch reference book is designed to engage and inspire teachers and learners whose curiosity is stirred every time they see a sketchnote. This is not a How-To guide, but rather a resource that provides multiple perspectives and examples for this highly creative, highly visual process used in support of note-taking, reflection, instruction, and meaning making.
While separated into chapters, you do not need to read this book in any particular order. Tap on any of the galleries to view them in full screen. At the end of the book is a section with resources and links to books, courses, websites, apps, and hardware that can help you to further explore sketchnoting for teaching and learning.
