Teaching language to refugee students with sketchnotes: Kristel Pent @bonaramis

Here is a sketchnote by Kristel Pent .

She wrote:

"These are new additions to our small but growing collection of sketchnotes on English grammar to help us teach the language to our refugee students. We're hoping to have sketchnotes on all major topics ready by the beginning of next study year. The one on modals has proven to be rather useful so far. "

I can only be in awe, so inspiring.

Thank you for sharing with us Kristel.

"Every sketchnote is going to be a new experiment." - Marc Savard @marcopolom

Here is a sketchnote by Marc Savard

He wrote:

I recently started to take visual notes, after having nearly crashed during an intensive text recording of an interview.
I was fed up with trying to record every single phrase, beeing scared of loosing a word. I decided it was time to give sketchnoting a try. I googled, visited sites, began scribing at home, doodles, words, titles, etc. Then I tried to add some scribing and drawings in notes I take during trainings sessions, and then this one last week during an in-house training session in my consulting firm. It's all in french and the training is about the consultant job.

I'm a rookie, have a very difficult relation to drawings, lots to learn (my colored main title is awful !) but I think I managed to let go and have a real fun doing this :) Every sketchnote is going to be a new experiment.


Marc says "(I) have a very difficult relation to drawings". And given this, I admire how he applied the core principles of sketchnote and can't refrain myself to quote my mentor, Mike Rohde  in the Sketchnote Handbook : 


Excellent work Marc!

This is a sketchnote on the talk "There Will Be Dragons" about digital maps in spanish UX event "Experience Fighters". I've been years waiting for the opportunity to draw a dragon on a sketchnote! :-D

Love the gray scale and the visuals!

Very well done Jimena!

"Think punk: Innovate, ideate and forgive." : Catherine Tilly 

Today's guest is Catherine Tilly 

She wrote:

It seems like I've been sketchnoting forever... on airplanes, in church, in school and in meetings. On paper and on my iPad. This spring I've sketchnoted at a few Chicago Ideas sessions. This one was given in May by Joi Ito, the director at MIT's Media Lab. I used my iPad pro and PaperFiftyThree app to sketch my thoughts. It was a blast, and I took away so many great ideas. Best one... "Think punk: Innovate, ideate and forgive."

 Swesome, Catherine, Awesome.
