About this professional learning
Sketchnoting, also known as visual note-taking or doodling, is a technique that has been gaining popularity for its ability to help people organize and retain information in a more creative and engaging way. By combining words and images, sketchnoting helps students make connections between ideas and to retain information more effectively than traditional note-taking methods. Dual Coding Theory tells us that recalling information is strongest when the VERBAL and VISUAL systems work together and Drawing Theory states that you remember things longer when you engage the LANGUAGE, VISUAL, and MOTOR parts of the brain. Using Science to validate the importance of engaging in different systems at once, it means that skechnoting is more than just “doodling” - it is purpose-driven doodling!
