Visual Thinking 101
Wednesday, August 3, 2011 from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM (CDT)
Why Visual Thinking? Join Allison Crow of Crow Hill Conversations for a workshop on the value of using visuals to clarify ideas, ignite inspiration and ambidextrous thinking, to tell stories, and to capture attention and emotion for enhanced learning. Pick up the pen and start learning to get visual thoughts on paper. Learn the Visual Thinking Alphabet and other shortcuts to doodling well, as well as methods to launch your graphic note taking/presenting skills. Students will also discuss application and using visuals in social sharing online.
In the afternoon session, students will learn to engage their audience with graphics, how to begin taking sketch notes, and how to create a visual template. Students will also cover the Push method of presenting content and Pull visual thinking methods to engage audiences.
Students are encouraged to bring their iPad, favorite stylus (Allison recommends the BOXWAVE or POGO), and the Notes+ app, but an iPad is by no means required! Sessions can be purchased separately; the morning will run from 8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m., and the afternoon from 1:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Check out Allison's presentation from E-Learning Symposium 2011 Austin. Allison was one of our highest rated speakers this year, and her workshop on the topic will knock you out of your seat!
