Drawings are a visual vocabulary and a powerful means of communication. Learning to draw simple icons can support your learners’ understanding, vocabulary recall, creativity, critical thinking and note taking skills. It can also rejuvenate teaching mojos, focus reflective practice, equip teachers with a bank of zero prep activities and add a touch of magic to classes. This session introduces teachers to basic graphic facilitation techniques such as using visual templates and capture sheets, graphic organisers and sketch noting. It demonstrates how to draw simple icons and containers to engage learners virtually or face to face.
