On November 5, 2014, I was privileged to visit York University to speak about futures thinking to a group of dynamic K-12 educators from across Ontario. For the one-hour session, Dushan Milic acted as our ‘graphic recorder’. He used his skills as a visual thinker and illustrator to capture the session through a series of ‘visual notes’.
The act of note-taking through pictures and words, and the creation of a visual narrative of an event, might have interesting implications in a K-12 classroom, don’t you think? Whether used by a teacher, or as an opportunity to engage a learner or learners in active note-taking, it models a different way of capturing knowledge.
Below is the graphic record of the York session. Feel free to right-click and download this for your own reference or use if you’d like! If you’re looking for a little more inspiration as to how you might use graphic recording in your school, check out this recent article that highlights some ideas.
