Sketchnotes in the Classroom
A More Visual Approach to Notetaking
Derek Bruff / derekbruff.org / @derekbruff
Sketchnotes are rich visual notes created from a mix of handwriting, drawings, hand-drawn typography, shapes, and visual elements like arrows, boxes, and lines.

More Examples:
What are sketchnotes?
Why sketchnote?
"When students are provided with an organizational structure in which to fit new knowledge,

they learn more effectively and efficiently

than when they are left to deduce this conceptual structure for themselves."

"The most effective notes highlight an overall framework for a lecture and embellish that framework with critical specifics."
(Williams & Eggert, 2002)
For short-term factual recall, reviewing complete notes is more important than taking notes.
(Williams & Eggert, 2002)
“Nearly all non-linear note-taking strategies benefit learning outcomes more than does the linear recording of information, with graphs and concept maps especially fostering the selection and organization of information.”
(Piolot, Olive, Kellogg, 2005)
“The external drawing is the learner’s attempt to depict on paper the image experienced internally.”
(Van Meter & Garner, 2005)
“The use of drawing caters to individual learner differences, as a drawing is shaped by the learner’s current or emerging ideas and knowledge of visual conventions.”
(Ainsworth, Prain, Tytler, 2011)
Why not?

Longhand notetakers outperformed laptop notetakers on conceptual understanding and long-term recall. (Mueller & Oppenheimer, 2014)
"Trellis," http://flic.kr/p/5AffFJ
Notetakers attending to main points over details did better at conceptual understanding, integration of ideas, and long-term recall. (Kiewra & Fletcher, 1984)
