In a previous post about doodling I stated that I am a doodler and that I have started to adopt this method into my note taking (above). After years of doodling on the side of the page and not focusing on my classes, it seems a more productive method to merge the two. This is resulting in some creative and interesting outcomes, which has grabbed a fair few admirers recently including our visiting lecturers.
As a result of the interest and to back up my notes I will be posting all of my doodles onto Flickr. If anyone is interested, have a peak and click View Notes (well doodles). Enjoy.
Whats your opinion? It’s not everyone’s cup of tea but as a serial doodler I’m all for people learning through sketches and drawings. This talk from Sunni Brown shows that the art of doodling is seen in a very poor light, in-fact the word itself has no real positive definition. Even though it can be seen as a key factor in how we learn and communicate (just look at cavemen for instance).
As already stated I love to doodle and often use them as part of my lecture notes (as shown here from a recent lecture). Despite the fact it can often look like I’m not listening and just drawing away. I personally find that doodling helps me retain information, spark creative thinking and also help me relax. But whats your opinion?
For great examples of talks being visualised by doodling have a look at these RSAnimate videos, which I’ll be posting about later.
OK video time has arrived. We are supposed to test out our film making abilities and make a small 30-90sec film about our project. So in planning my storyboard I decided to do some research and these are what i found. The Tony vs. Paul video (above), the PEN story, this Carphone Warehouse AD and this famous students post-it video. Very good watching.
