Launching Innovation in Schools MOOC course captured by Alice Gentili @MonaLisaLvsHeah

Here is a sketchnote by Alice Gentili .   

She wrote:

These SketchNotes were created to absorb and reflect on the Launching Innovation in Schools MOOC course with Peter Senge and Justin Reich through MIT last spring. They represent a general approach to launching innovation in schools and my launch personal action plan.

You can find the whole sketchnote collection on Alice's Behance profile .

Very interesting Alice. The use of shaded background and geometric shapes cought my eyes!

Teachers and Sketchnote: Bonnie Grover @bvgrover

Today's exciting story is from Bonnie Grover.

She wrote:

After a year of practicing, I decided to share my learning with someone other than 5th graders. Instead of waiting until I was really ready, I went for it "cannon ball style"! What a fun, fun class! We had teachers from many different grade levels and disciplines. One teacher said, "I feel terrible because last year I got mad at a student for drawing. I really want a do-over." I hope our students are as excited and as engaged as their teachers were to begin using sketchnoting in their classes.

Thank you so much for sharing this, Bonnie.

We always do LOVE to hear stories about how sketchnotes are use for Education.

Keep up the good work and, please, keep up posted about your sketchnoting in class activity.

Goodnotes App tips by Neil McManus @neilm2 

Here is a work by Neil McManus

He wrote

I'm just getting started with sketchnoting on my iPad Pro. I'm not a designer so sketchnoting for me is more about working through ideas and plans than illustrating. I've tried a few programs, including Paper 53, Notability and Procreate. I've settled on Goodnotes for a few reasons I list in this sketchnote.

Good job Neil! 

Thank you for sharing with us.

First Sketchnote: Sarah van de Berg @adoorabell

First Sketchnote is the category of posts we LOVE the most.

Today we are happy to feature Sarah van de Berg   

She wrote:

So pleased to share my very first Sketchnotes, taken Thursday at an update on the Wigan Council transformation of Children's Services. I found that I'd not quite finished the double page spread when the briefing came to an end, so I added the picture of the speaker afterwards, all other notes and embellishments were done in the session.

Wow! looks like you're a "natural"!

Keep going Sarah and keep us posted about your progress!
