"mLearnCon" conference in San Diego captured by Jamila Breese 


Here is Jamila Breese's sketchnote of Karen McGrane's keynote captured on June 25, 2014 at the mLearnCon conference in San Diego, "Content in a Zombie Apocalypse." Signed by Karen at the top!

I like the use of color to highlight key concepts and create a hierarchy.

Don't miss Jami's Sketchnote board on Pinterest.

Thanks for sharing Jami!

First Sketchnotes: Ben Stolz


Here is Ben Stolz's  sketchnote he captured during a webinar.

He writes:

I was attending a really boring IPv6 Fundamentals webinar. Why are all IPv6 things boring? Anyway, I tried Sketchnote to stay focused and engaged. It worked.

I'm happy to hear this, Ben!

Keep going!

From the backlog: First Sketchnote - Raul Hernandez

I love these excellent first sketchnotes from Raúl Hernández! He's decided to convert a book into a sketchnote - the book is Helping, by Edgar B. Schein.

I talk about this in the new Sketchnote Workbook — capturing media like books, movies, TV and podcasts as a great way to practice your skills. You can pre-oder the book at Amazon with a release date of August 23rd.

Becoming an expert plan: Andrea Brücken

A nice example of skyscraper structured sketchnote from Andrea Brücken.

She write:

The idea for this sketchnote was to show my way of learning about different aspects of communication: languages, cultures, different arts like theatre, music, literature, verbal, non-verbal, visual etc.


Very nice, Andrea
