Sketchnotes from TRIZfest 2014: Horst Naehler

As a TRIZ student I particularly love this sketchnote by Horst Naehler .

He wrote:

I am quite new to this but have a long lasting affinity to sketching, doodling, pens & paper... so this are my first "public" sketchnotes from a TRIZ conference (TRIZ = Theory of Inventive Problem Solving) held this year in Prague. They were captured and colored during the conference and mainly published for the TRIZ community, when Mauro Toselli found them and asked me to submit them here, which is a big honour for me! Thank you very much!

You can find a couple of dozens more sketchnotes on his blog.

Thank you for sharing Horst!

Monopoly Style Sketchnote: Nicki Hambleton

This made me smile! 

Such an interesting sketchnote interpretation by Nicki Hambleton .

She wrote:

I make visual notes using Adobe Ideas on the iPad and they sit alongside my blog posts to synchronise my thinking as well as to communicate the Big Picture to readers. This particular visual note plays on the design of the board game Monopoly but visualising ideas about Gamification in Education. The note takes you around the board helping teachers to understand the what, why and what next of gamification and the tools to bring this concept into the classroom.

You can read the post on her blog .

Very interesting, Nicki!

Sketchnoting Books: Jeff Sandquist

We are happy to feature an example of book's sketchnote by Jeff Sandquist

Here is his sketchnote of Greg McKeown's book Essentialism.

Jeff wrote:

Big takeaway - you can't do it all, so focus on the essential instead of everything.

Great tips, Jeff!

Thanks for sharing with us.

Sketchnoting Without Knowing: Heide Heiman

This is a Sketchnote by Heide Heiman : SwissArmy Knife is a great metaphor. 

She wrote:

I am a new teacher living in Northern British Columbia Canada. I went to a Professional Development Workshop on Kursweil and took these notes. I have Sketchnoted all through University not knowing that it was a thing until I read Mike Rohde's book last year. 

I particularly like the last part: sketchnoting without knowing it is a thing. 

This might deserve a thought or two and a Sketchnote, ah?

Thanks for sharing and for inspiration Heide!
