Sketchnoting Research and News

Drawing to Learn | Learning Sciences Research Institute

“Ainsworth, Prain and Tyler  (2011) in a paper in Science argue that  drawing  can play a number of  important roles in learning:, namely:
Drawing to enhance engagement — surveys have shown that when students draw to explain they are more motivated to learn compared to traditional teaching of science.
Drawing to learn to represent in science — the process of producing visual representations  helps learners understand how scientific representations work.
Drawing to reason in science — student learn to reason like scientists as they select specific features to focus on in their drawings, aligning it with observation, measurement and/or emerging ideas
Drawing as a learning strategy — if learners read a text and then draw it, the process of making their understanding visible and explicit helps them to overcome limitations in presented material, organise and integrate their knowledge and ultimately can be transformative.
Drawing to communicate — discussing their drawings with their students provides teachers with windows into students’ thinking as well being a way that the peers can share knowledge, discovery and understanding.”
Skills and Strategies | Doodling, Sketching and ‘Mind Mapping’ as Learning Tools – The New York Times

Excellent article on the strategies and skills students need about sketchnoting, doodling, and mind mapping. These are important skills. Kathy Schrock is quoted in the article. Hat tip to Sylvia Duckworth for this gem.
