Maynard Jackson High School

Sketch Effect at Maynard Jackson

The entire team from Sketch Effect started their week bright and early with back-to-back sessions teaching four art classes- that's 125 high school students!- at Maynard Jackson in Atlanta about visual note taking. 

Sketch Effect's workshop drew on the principle that people learn in two ways—verbally and visually—and discussed creative, effective communication and note-taking methods that leverage both channels of learning. 

Students learned about information hierarchy and visual navigation, got to see William Warren and the rest of the team in action as they did a live- drawing to a Ted Talk, and then the students got to put their new skills to the test with visual note taking exercises of their own.  

Here is the hand out they gave the students, so you can learn more about visual note taking for your own use in class, meetings, or at events!
