Sketchnoting books: "Living Forward" sketchnoted by Matt Miller

Today we feature Matt Miller who sketchnoted  "Living Forward" by Michael Hyatt and Daniel Harkavy .

He wrote:

When I read something that connects with me, my first impulse is to do something with it and share it with others. I like to take the message of authors or keynote speakers and put my own twist on it through organization and illustration. I read "Living Forward" by Michael Hyatt and Daniel Harkavy, a book about intentional living and creating a life plan. I incorporated the same blue that dominated the book's design as a spot color and tried to incorporate lots of icons as visual hooks.

Here you can find two more sketchnotes about the book:

"... my first impulse is to do something with it and share it with others ..." 

I like how you think Matt!

Digital Trends in 2016 Keynote Captured by Jolijn Van Eenooghe

Here is a sketchnote by Jolijn Van Eenooghe
She wrote:
I started sketchnoting about one year ago. Since then it has been motivating me to make more drawings, try new things and explore my creative side. This sketchnote was made during an event where different speakers came to talk about the future of learning. I draw in sketchbooks, although I never manage to put everything on one page. Afterwards, I love to stick the pages together so that they look a little bit like a ‘comic’.
Interesting! Keep exploring Jolijn!

Incorporate SketchNoting into high school chemistry class: Niels Walkau

Senza titolo

Today we feature an interesting experiment by Niels Walkau

He wrote;

I teach high school chemistry in Canada and am constantly looking to innovate and try new pedagogical approaches. I am inspired by and looking to incorporate, sketchnoting as a way for students to demonstrate their deep understanding of chemistry. We are boldly starting off by having students sketchnote their macroscopic observations of experiments and then do the same with their microscopic inferences of what they think is happening at the atomic level. I am looking for students to be thinking deeply and to explain concepts clearly. In my opinion, sketchnoting is tailor made for this. I am so excited to see where this takes my students this semester and beyond!

Other examples are on Niels' Flickr Album.

We will be happy to know how this will go.

Keep us posted Niels!
