This weeks when learning about sketch-noting, the idea resonated with me. As a visual learner myself, I found that this would be very helpful for me to begin as a practice of my own.
Above I have taken a photo of how I used sketch-notes in one of my classes. In my Applied Theatre course we were learning about Paulo Friere and the importance of active learning. Traditionally we have a passive way of education. Friere’s idea is that when you can become active in a learning process, you are more likely to grasp more. I found it ironic that this is what I was studying in my class as I feel as though it translated well to this class.
The idea that we should be learning more actively rather than passively can support many learners as everyone learns at their own pace. What I found to be interesting in the sketch-notes was how I was then able to remember this concept and apply it to one of my other classes!
