Sketchnotes of all 9 DTT Digital Summit presentations

dtt-ds-500x600

Sketcher Jen Giffen captured all nine sessions of the Ditch That Textbook Digital Summit in visual notes!

The first Ditch That Textbook Digital Summit reached educators all over the world with innovative teaching ideas.

Thousands of teachers from dozens of countries signed up. The nine video presentations were viewed more than 15,000 times during the 16 days of the summit.

The #DitchSummit Twitter hashtag was a flurry of activity, with hundreds of educators writing thousands of tweets.

UPDATE: There will be an encore presentation of the Digital Summit! All videos, notes and certificates of completion will be available for one more week in January. Check everything out from Jan. 12-18, 2017, at DitchSummit.com. Go to DitchSummit.com/ticket to get your FREE ticket to have links emailed to you!

One of those Digital Summit participants was Jen Giffen, a digital literacy resource teacher from the York Region of Ontario, Canada.

Did she take notes during each video presentation? Why yes, she did.

Sketchnotes. Visual notes. Of ALL of the presentations. I was FLOORED by every one of them.

So, I figured, why not turn an entire post over to Jen’s creative work? Below are all nine of Jen’s sketchnotes of the Digital Summit presentations. Plus, she very generously shared high-resolution scans of all of them here. Feel free to download, print and share them — but be sure to credit Jen!

    These sketch notes are amazing! Thank You! Thank you Matt for the Digital Summit. It was incredible! I learned so much! I’m happy that I can see the last few presentations that I missed.

  • […] thing that I have thought about since DitchSummit is about the role of homework after Alice Keeler‘s talk.  I still have some reservations […]
