Visual Notetaking: show what you know with media (Mapping Media to the Curriculum Book 5)
Visual notetaking is a process of representing ideas non-linguistically. This is a fancy of way of saying “drawing pictures of ideas, concepts, or a process.” Visual notetaking can include concept mapping, but also more artistic ways of visually capturing and representing ideas. On the simpler side of the visual notetaking continuum, visual notes can be used to create narrated art. On the complex end of the spectrum, some visual notetaking applications support the creation of whiteboard animation videos which include audio narration synchronized to screencasts of drawings. Visual or graphic facilitation can be used at meetings to summarize presentations and guide discussions. Whether simple or complex, visual notes can be used to more deeply process information as well as communicate it to others with images. This chapter highlights examples of visual notes, available apps and websites to use when creating and sharing visual notes, and workflows students and teachers can use to effectively utilize visual notetaking in the classroom.
