Integrating information and memorising it effectively
Sketchnotes are a note-taking technique that combines visual and textual elements. The term is a contraction of two words: Sketch and Notes. This creative approach stimulates cognitive engagement, as it involves the visual, auditory and kinaesthetic senses simultaneously, strengthening the connection between information and the brain. By transforming concepts and ideas into images, icons and diagrams, sketchnoting encourages deeper understanding and more effective retention of information.
One of the barriers to sketchnoting is that few people think they can draw. Well, rest assured, you don't need to be an illustrator to sketch! Using simple techniques and models (simple figurines, symbols, pictorial diagrams), you'll be surprised at how easily you can convey your ideas.
