1. How is this sketchnoting technique different to the traditional note taking?
Sketchnoting is creative and unique. It is creating a personal visual story as one is listening to a speaker or reading a text. By contrast, the expression way of traditional one is focus on writing words.
2. How does this visual approach facilitate communication of your ideas? Conversely, how does it prevent it?
Sketchnoting combines the use of images, shapes and connectors, and sometimes it is more likely to capturing only the most important or most interesting parts of a discussion. This way increases people’s ability to recall complex ideas and concepts, helping them to better retain information, communicate and engage with others. However, sketchnoting records less details, which may make preventions to communication.
3. Personal challenges as a sketchnoter
In my opinion, it is difficult to quickly synthesise and summarise ideas by combining visuals and text, because we need to listen, think and draw simultaneously and, thus we need to spend more time to practice sketchnoting skills.
