Using Wacom One for sketchnoting

Postby HellyDouglas » Wed 24. Mar 2021, 12:18

If you've got a Wacom One, it's the perfect tool for sketchnoting. Because you can see the screen and draw directly on it, it's easy to write and draw very accurately.

First, choose a digital whiteboard space (like Explain Everything or Limnu) or just use a blank slide from a presentation.

    - Experiment with drawing different boxes - they can be clouds, squares, thought bubbles- anything you like.
    - Create icons you'll use for key information. There are loads of lists online you can use. Remember to keep using the same icons each time so students learn what they mean.
    - Put in connectors to show links or processes: arrows, lines, dotted lines- try different line thicknesses to make them stand out.
    - Make simple drawings- keep them really simple, stick figures and outlines rather than art work.
    - Add text: Change colours, add bullet lists, highlight key words - there's no need for lots of text.
    - With your Wacom pen you can quickly erase, move, and re-draw to make changes.

If you're on a digital whiteboard, there's limitless space so you can keep expanding your sketchnotes in any direction. Share a link with students so they can view or add their own ideas.

If you search online there are plenty of examples of teachers using sketch noting in the classroom, and a few courses if you're interested in taking it further.

I think sketchnoting should be a big part of classroom presentations. Less reading out slides and more drawing and talking.

Tim May has an excellent podcast episode about visual thinking that's useful for teachers:
