Today in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, I shared the six minute video, “Developing Communication Skills With YouTube & iPad Videos” with teachers, librarians, and school division educational consultants.

This video was originally shared on the “Learning Showcase Website” of Yukon Public Schools in Oklahoma. Inspired by the work of Giulia Forsythe and Rachel Smith on visual notetaking, workshop participants drew / created “nonlinguistic representations” of some of the ideas shared by 4/5 grade teacher Ginger Gregory and her students in this video. Here are a few examples.

Visual Notes: YouTube in the Classroom

In addition to drawing these “visual notes,” we also explored how narrated art projects can be created using free apps and web platforms like AudioBoo. This is one example we recorded together.

See my post from Monday, “Learning about Visual Notetaking from Giulia Forsythe” as well as the “Visual Notetaking” page of Mapping Media to the Common Core for more resources related to visual notes. Lots of good instructional strategies here using technology, which is very practical in BYOD settings!
