My first experience teaching sketchnoting was to this fabulous group of fourth graders at Beaver Acres Elementary in Mrs. Hoxie's class. The very next day I was in four 8th grade humanities classes. The student examples are from multiple classes aged upper elementary to 8th grade.
In March I attended CUE for the second year in a row, there were three standout sessions on sketchnoting and I took a little bit from all three to help me start teaching the rest of my district.
Bullet Journaling... what the heck is bullet journaling and why do I keep seeing so much about it? For me my bujo (throwing words around already- bujo=bullet journal) has made me a better sketchnoter and my sketchnote skills were super handy when starting my bullet journal.
I ran into a colleague from my home town while at ISTE, Alyssa's website, and she mentioned that I should sign up for Blogging Buddies, a group run through the ISTE PLN Edtech Coaches. I was with a few of my teammates at the time so we headed over to the Edtech Coaches playground, I narrowed my sights and signed up right away. I am not sure my teammates have yet but I will be sure to talk to them about the process to continue to encourage them :-)
We start at the beginning ISTE 2016, sessions and inspirations.
