There are many ways, we can take notes. The traditional paper and pencil method is not the only way to jot down what was said, what we heard, our ideas, connections, etc. With many tools at our disposal it is up to us to try different platforms out, experiment with different media and be aware HOW each type of note taking influences our ability to create understanding, make connections, and aid in remembering what we heard and learned. Visual note taking can be a quite visually appealing way to SHARE the notes with a larger audience as well
Below, you will see a visual note taking attempt to document the recent AASSA Educators’ Conference in Lima, Peru.
