BarCamp e’ una nonconferenza  che nasce dal desiderio delle persone di condividere e apprendere in un ambiente aperto e libero. Il BarCamp è una non-conferenza collaborativa, dove chiunque può “salire in cattedra”, proporre un argomento e parlarne agli altri, con lo scopo di favorire il libero pensiero, la curiosità, la divulgazione e la diffusione delle tematiche trattate.

First Sketchnote: Filippo Foglia

I'm excited to share this great sketchnote by the younger attendee of my last Workshop: Filippo Foglia 
He wrote:
Hi all, my name is Filippo and I'm 13. After attending the first, Italian Sketchnote Workshop (thanks Mauro, you're a great teacher!!!) I tried this new way to summarize the lesson at school. And now I enjoy studying a lot more than before!
This is great, so proud of you Filippo!

The Sketchnote Workbook Featured Sketchnoter: Ruud Cox

Today's guest is Ruud Cox

Ruud's bio on Twitter say:

System/Software Tester, DEWT, Sketchnoter and Music Lover

1. Tell us when you first met Sketchnote/Visual art

I first met Sketchnotes in the beginning of 2013. Two colleagues of mine created a workshop Visual Thinking for Testers which covered a short introduction to Sketchnotes. They mentioned the Sketchnote Handbook, I read it and decided to give it a try at the next conference. The rest is history :-)

 2. How this impacted on your life/work/thinking?

I started doing Sketchnotes because I saw it as a oppertunity to combine a long forgotten hobby with work. I used to draw a lot when I was younger and I have a background as a graffiti artist. I started to post my Sketchnotes on twitter during conferences and got very positive feedback from other delegates. My Sketchnotes inspired other software testers to start taking notes this way and it inspired me to start drawing again.

3. Sketchnotes: digital or analogical? Why?

 

I love analog. It might be the rough, imperfect look of the sketches or the feeling of a pen touching paper. I also like to experiment with different kinds of notebooks, pens, colored pencils etc. I even bought my first fountain pen the other day, a TWSBI Diamond 580 clear. But to be honest, it is hard for me to describe.

 4. Share a Sketchnote secret tip with us!

I use Google Images for new ideas for my visual library. I search for a metaphore or whatever I need in my library and practice drawing it.

 Bonus. The Sketchnote Workbook: can you tell us something about it?

I was very happy when the Sketchnote Workbook was annouced beacuse it shows that visual notetaking can be applied for many different purposes, not only for presentations. I skim the book on a regular basis, as with my own sketchnotes, because it an attractive book.

 

We thank you Ruud for sharing with us.

The Power of "I Don't Know" Sketchnote: Rebeca Zuñiga

I'm a big fan of Rebeca Zuñiga sketchnotes.
Here is the one inspired by this post on Edutopia.
She wrote:
Inspired in Edutopia post, about the power of I don´t know, I drawn this visual note.   
Role of teachers nowadays is crucial in order to change the negative perception about not knowing something in the classroom and the opportunities that this gives in the real world.
Be sure to not miss other Rebeca sketchnotes on her Flickr set .
An excellent work, Rebeca.

Sketchnoting Travel Experience: Holly Kennedy

A wonderful example of Travel Sketchnotes by Holly Kennedy.
She wrote:
I'm lucky enough to travel the world whilst running my remote UX design consultancy. Recently I saw Mike's beautiful travel sketchnotes from Amersterdam and thought this was a blummin' brilliant idea. What a perfect way to keep practicing sketchnoting whilst also recording each week of my fantastic adventure!
Throughout the next 8 weeks I shall be creating sketchnote stories from here in Thailand and (hopefully) getting better as the weeks progress.

Very beautiful, Holly and, yes, you are a lucky girl :-)
