Jill Gough (@jgough) and Shelley Paul (@lottascales) are facilitating a session entitled Visual Note Taking – Join the Doodle Revolution at the 2014 Georgia Independent School Association (GISA) conference.
How might note taking become more active, personal, brain-compatible and shareable? How might we incorporate symbols and doodles to improve listening, better express ideas, summarize/synthesize learning and make connections? Join a conversation and practice session to explore how we might grow ourselves and our learners through doodling and visual thinking.
- Read Ish by Peter Reynolds
- Share artifacts of visual note taking and impact at school
- Practice by sketch noting Simon Sinek’s TED Talk How Great Leaders Inspire Action
- Gallery walk to show and share (#ShowYourWork)
- Repeat as time permits
- Reflect using the Visible Thinking Routine, Connect, Extend, Challenge
- I can talk about what I know, and I can talk about what I don’t know.
- I can be brave, vulnerable, kind, and considerate to myself and others while learning.
- I can learn from mistakes, and I can celebrate what I thought before and now know.

The sketchbook handout:
The reflection: Connect, Extend, Challenge
- How do these ideas connect to what you already know?
- What new ideas did you get that extend or push your thinking in new directions?
- What is now a challenge for you to get your mind around? What questions, wonderings, and puzzles do you now have?
