Design, content/concept, and reflection converge to create sketchnotes. Sketchnoting captures thinking during and after an interaction with rhetoric (reading, video, lecture, TED talk, etc.). Through literal and figurative representation, doodle, text, and structure combine to create a visual story. The opportunity to creatively capture thoughts and incorporate art in the process aids in comprehension. Not only is sketchnoting a creative option for complex processing, it can result in a creative complex work.
Connecting Creativity, at its core, functions on the ideal that student work, particularly writing and design, should be published and shared. As a teacher, if you already have a channel in place to share student work, such as a blog, website, or social media account, we ask that you share the link(s) to student work with us to continue to share with others. If you do not have a method for sharing student work, we invite you publish your students’ work via one of our channels. We would be happy to post student work on rethinkredesign.org. Additionally, if you would like support in setting up your own channel for publishing, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Apps
