A presentation for The EdTech Users Group workshop in 2017.
In our Going Visual workshop, we used the Grids and Gestures activity to draw out the timeline of the quartz parrot theft. Participants were not allowed to use words, numbers or images. The result is an interesting mix of icons, frames, and maps.
Here are the drawings for part one of the timeline (the hours up to the theft):
And the drawings for part two (hours after the theft):
And for your reference in detecting the identity of the perpetrator of the crime, here is the timeline of events as well as a description of the suspects.
Drawing is a common and powerful means to convey ideas, but is often hampered by a perceived “inability to draw”. In this session, participants practice their drawing skills and explore strategies to apply them to their teaching.
What are some of the benefits to “going visual” with hand drawn visuals?
