30+ education sketchnotes for inspiration, ideas

Sketchnotes can capture your attention -- and capture an idea visually. They're a great way to communicate ideas. Here are 30 education sketchnotes to give you ideas and inspiration.

When I scroll Twitter for new teaching ideas, a good sketchnote can stop me in my tracks.

Maybe it's the color.

Maybe it's how busy the image is.

Maybe it's because there's a lot to unpack.

But often, I stop to unpack those ideas -- and they linger in my mind.

Sketchnoting (or visual notetaking) is the combination of images and text to create visually stimulating notes. There's all kinds of evidence for using them:

I've been fortunate to come across LOTS of great sketchnotes in the Ditch That Textbook Digital Summit. It's a FREE online conference for teachers I put on every year in December, including ...

  • 50+ video presentations
  • Certificates of completion for professional development credit
  • Downloadable PDF notes
  • Great prize giveaways

... and a thriving Twitter community in the #DitchSummit hashtag. When the summit is open, lots of educators flock to the hashtag, sharing what they've learned in the video presentations.

One talented sketchnoter -- Jen Giffen (Twitter: @VirtualGiff) -- has sketched presentations in all four years of the Ditch Summit.

If you're looking for ideas, Jen's sketchnotes will inspire and equip you.

Below is a Wakelet collection of Jen's sketchnotes from the Ditch That Textbook Digital Summit. You'll get ideas on a wide variety of topics, including technology, pedagogy, student relationships, equity, creativity and more. Click an image to see a larger version of it.
