Today’s learners no longer need to be limited to the written or printed word when externalizing ideas. To some degree, however, educational systems seem to drive hand-drawn imagery and graphical representations out of the acceptable range of choices for expression. With iPad, it is possible to visualize and share complexity by engaging in a process known as sketchnoting in both teaching and learning. Our multi-touch reference book is designed to engage and inspire teachers and learners whose curiosity is stirred every time they see a sketchnote. This is not a How-To guide, but rather a resource that provides multiple perspectives and examples for this highly creative, highly visual process used in support of note-taking, reflection, instruction, and meaning making.
