Workshop sketchnoting for students

The world is changing at a furious pace, with large amounts of information becoming the norm. This is asking a lot of students in the field of education and development.

By attending these workshops, they receive useful tips and tricks to display this information visually in order to keep an overview for themselves and to be able to combine information, so that the students retain their creativity while they are busy processing relevant material.

Whereas the entrepreneurship workshops stop at the basics, these workshops are an ideal way to go deeper into sketchnoting.

— Central within our workshops

The practical focus is a central point during our workshops. Not only will you see that you don’t need to have magic drawing skills, but you will also better understand what we are trying to teach you.

Of course, we also explain the theory, because without the theory it is difficult to start. This will be done in an interactive way where the students get the chance to ask all the questions they have, but also to look for solutions together.

These workshops are made to work together on an alternative method for text. In this way they can discover for themselves what they like to absorb information and make a good and clear overview. This gives them the opportunity to choose the best way that suits them.

Applying and practicing

— Visuals is a good addition within Education because:

Everyone learns differently

For learners, visual communication can simplify the process of processing and conveying information. Everyone learns differently. Therefore, we want to give students the opportunity to use a method that suits them. This skill can help them process information further in the future. We want to make sure that the uniqueness in every student is embraced!

Dual Coding

Students sometimes find it difficult to express themselves in text. Sketchnoting is a method that can bring a lot of overview and suddenly clarity. By applying the theory of Dual Coding, several parts of the brain are activated. This results in faster processing of the lesson material and the material is better remembered.

Being interactive

By applying visual thinking in teaching, the students are practically engaged with the subject and the information. In this way, they are not easily distracted and learn the subject while discussing and drawing with their peers. By thinking and doing, we prepare them for the future in a fun entrepreneurial way.

— How we are going to achieve this

We believe it is important that our workshops fit the needs of you as a school. Therefore, we prepare a tailor-made case at the multiple sessions in order to provide targeted guidance to the students on the path to finding their communication.

Furthermore, we find it important that it is interactive and a fun experience. During the workshops we will actively work with the content, exercises and learning from each other.

Whatever your goal is, it promises to be a fun and educational day!

Teamwork

Overview

By approaching certain material visually, teachers and students can work more effectively. It gives a better overall view and thus the material can be absorbed more easily.

Problem solving

With the tailor-made case study, we specifically address a problem you are experiencing in order to work it out in a visual way and come up with possible solutions.

Find your balance

We think it is important that everyone can discover their own balance between verbal and visual. In this way, everyone can develop their own best method of communication and showcase their own talents.

— The timeline towards the workshops

It all starts with a free, no-obligation meeting (online via Zoom) in which we meet and discuss what we can do for your school and what your wishes are. It is always possible to have workshops tailored to your needs, for this we can send you an offer without engagement.

When you decide to schedule this fun workshop, we will get to work preparing and tailoring the workshop to your needs. From the Sketch your Thoughts workshop onwards we will also start working on the tailor-made case during this time. We will keep in touch about this in the meantime.

The moment has come! On the agreed day the workshop will take place where we will work with the theory and practice needed to master this skill. It is of course guaranteed that this will be a very enjoyable day. At the end of the workshops, the students will know how to apply this within their learning process and how to benefit from it. Furthermore, you will know how to go on a journey to find your own balance between visual and textual.

In order to deliver the full 100%, you can always contact us for questions and advice. In addition, we also offer a coaching programme where we give extra guidance in applying visual communication within the lessons.
