What Is Sketchnoting?

Ink-and-Ideas_Sketchnoting

The use of sketchnotes is gaining in momentum and credibility in business and education Like so many popular concepts, though, the topical lexicon can be confusing. At times, multiple labels for the same ideas appear in the media and professional literature, and we often toss words around with meanings that overlap. In other sources, you might read about edusketching, visual notetaking, graphic representation, and a variety of other terms.

Sketchnoting is defined as creative, individualized notetaking that uses a mix of linguistic and nonlinguistic representation, aka words and pictures together. Sketchnoting also:

  • Honors thinking through offering choice. 
  • Supports increased memory and focus.
  • Promotes deceleration and relaxation.
  • Is intentional, designed thinking.
