  1. Yes. Love this idea, this method of note taking. This is something I will try and apply to my note taking to make it more effective. It looks so artful – was it revised from the original sketchnote or was this the original? How large a sheet of paper(?) was it done on? By all means, please post a weekly sketchnote for “On Being” if possible. Thanks Doug.

      Hi Anthony. Yes, you should give notes like this a try! These here were done on paper about 8 in x 5 in. This is the original sketchnote – sometimes I get lucky and it turns out okay on the first go-round. I’m glad you enjoyed this one, and thanks for the feedback!

  3. I love this — do you use different colors when you take notes? Have you taught students how to do this? I think it would be a very engaging note-taking strategy for kids who may get lost in lectures. I’d love to hear about your experience if you have tried it in a classroom (ages of kids, etc…)

      Hi Jan, I’ve experimented using different colors simultaneously, and found that if I limit my options to just a couple then I enjoy it. For example I’ve used just black for the main content but then another color to highlight and make connections. But as you can see, lately I’ve been sticking to black pen only. I’ll probably go back to experimenting with color again in the near future!

      Though I haven’t taught students sketchnoting in a face-to-face classroom, I did incorporate it into an online class that I taught last year. I recently wrote a post about that experiment, which you can check out here:

      Thanks for the comments and questions!
