Teaching Digital Civics with Sketchnotes

In this episode Krissa Randolph and I chat about her plans to teach civics and digital literacy in an online environment, using sketchnotes to help plan and deliver lessons, and also how students might use that skill when completing assignments. We’re catching Krissa at the beginning of her journey through the course An Introduction to Visual Note-Taking, so this is a great episode for setting goals and intentions prior to jumping into a learning experience.

I’ve begun to experiment with recording my iPad screen while doing some live mind mapping of these conversations.

Here’s how this one came together, in case it helps you track the flow of our conversation:

And here’s what the final mind map looked like at the end of our conversation:
