Visual Sketch Noting
A Course for Teachers, Students and Parents
Research shows that the key to learning and engagement is emotion. Visual storytelling takes advantage of our brains preference for visual information over text. By intentionally using and creating visual icons and stories, we are activating our learner's intuitive right brain and triggering emotional connections, stimulating imagination, boosting retention and big-picture thinking.
