In this session we will demonstrate how sketchnoting is used to capture complex information using color, shapes, lines, and text to focus on bigger ideas and interpret information visually so that it is easily understood and remembered. Learn how it is used by ELL students to create and refine mental models, make thinking visible, and problem solve. You'll leave with simple techniques and examples that enhance learning.
