A few key quotes from Rachel:
When you use visual note-taking though, you have to listen to whats being said, you have to really hear it and you have to understand it. Because that's the only way you're going to come up with an image that connects what you're hearing, with what you already know in your mind."
Visual note taking opens the door for more playful connections between information — for students to use their imaginations, in an activity than can often be very passive — note-taking."
Watch it! This is most definitely worth 18 minutes of your time!
