Ridge Sketchnoting Movie - Amy Panfalone @amy_panfalone 

We are happy to feature this awesome video shared by Amy Panfalone:

She wrote:

I teach seventh and eighth grade art in the Lakota School district near Cincinnati OH. I am new to the concept of sketchnoting but thought it would be a great activity to do with my students in art class to help them learn a valuable study technique for their other classes. The process was very successful, and I was even able to host a session for teachers at our most recent professional development day!

You can see all of the sketchnote done by the students on this blog post.

Thank you for sharing this, Amy! We look forward to see more about your project about Sketchnote: keep us posted!

Jan, 11 2018 - World Sketchnote Day IS BACK! #SNDay2018 #eyecontact

January 11th 2018: SAVE THE DATE!

Hello fellow sketchnoters!

We are ready for the day that all sketchnoters in the world celebrate the practice of sketchnoting!

As you may have noticed, both Mike and Mauro are in a super busy phase of our life and we are not present online and for the Community as we would like to be.

We asked ourselves ""how #SNDay2018 will, be?", "how we can organize that?", "what if we don't have time?"and struggled with these questions only to realize that the answer is very simple:

World Sketchnote Day:
is NOT Mike's or Mauro's event,
it is NOT a Sketchnote Army event,
World Sketchnote Day IS a COMMUNITY EVENT!!!

The Community made possible so many things, not to mention the amazing International Sketchnote Camp in Hamburg , and #SNDay2018 will be the same: a great occasion to share the love for sketchnotes, to raise our voice as sketchnoters and make the world a better place one sketchnote at a time.

As usual we have a few suggestions for you about how to celebrate  #SNDay2018:

Badges and logos

Here are the badges and logos in various sizes, feel free to download them and use on social media, as avatars, print and hang everywhere:






This is a "byproduct" of the workshop Mauro and Marc Bourguignon gave at the  International Sketchnote Camp in Hamburg , particularly the original idea came from our friend Chris Malapitan .

The concept it's pretty simple: rather than posting your sketchnote only, just take a selfie where you have your work AND your eyes and post it with the hashtag #eyecontact !


Buy the stickers, print the badges, paste them everywhere, take a picture, post the picture with #sndayguerrilla hashtag!

Wear it proud, say it loud!

Wear a Sketchnote t-shirt or hoodie! Let people ask "what is sketchnoting?".

Of course, don't forget to share a selfie!

Ok guys, that's it for now!

See you out there on Jan 11 for #SNDay2018!

Consider Sketchnotes for More Effective Note Taking - Sheyra Kelley @sheyra

Here is a great work by Sheyra Kelley 

She wrote: 

I started regularly taking Sketchnotes following a conference I attended last year called Adobe MAX. There were so many great sessions, and a few different ways I could have captured the presentations. I thought it was important to record the material in a way that would be engaging enough to repeat across the following days and memorable upon returning to the content. Pulling out my iPad, I opened my drawing app, and instead thought I’d give this method a try. It was fun taking notes! (Who actually has fun taking notes, right?) After a few minutes into that first session, it became a fairly fluid process to come up with containers and shapes to support the keywords and thoughts I wanted to highlight. Being more of a visual learner, the experience was very organic and I was able to create a set of notes that would be easy to digest later on. This particular capture is from a session I attended called “Users are People, Too!”

Thank you for sharing this with us Sheyra!
