Were you ever taught how to take notes? Even if you were, do you take notes effectively? Or are you like most of us, who look back at our notes five minutes after we've written them down and have no recollection of what they say? The practice of conventional note-taking has taught us how to be excellent transcribers, but for most of us, this is not an effective way to sit in a class or meeting and actively engage with, process and retain information.
Visual Note-taking (also known as "Sketch-noting") is a skill designed to help you spatialize and visualize information as you hear it. This skill helps with information retention, improves your brains ability to engage during the note-taking process, and it's fun! Visual Note-taking is an introduction to visual communication that will help you become more comfortable visualizing and sketching your ideas.Disclaimer
