The Martian Way

26 Jun 2015 in Sketchnotes Tagged: Books

Recently picked up this Isaac Asimov collection of four short stories, with this interesting sixties cover. I’m trying my technique of some post reading doodles to help my memory, and enjoyment. It was new to do short stories, and good to pause at the end to do a little drawing. I think I need to watch that I don’t try to illustrate the story, but instead take bits that will act as signposts for me.

The Blind Assassin

17 Jun 2015 in Sketchnotes Tagged: Books

My post reading sketchnote from ‘The Blind Assassin’ by Margaret Atwood. It took a while for me to get into it, but then it was really enjoyable. Some evocative passages and convincing backdrop to a well told story. The multiple narratives and switches never felt contrived.

Drive Sketchnotes

20 May 2015 in Sketchnotes Tagged: Books

Really enjoyed this book, and my notes don’t do it justice. I’ve captured the main points but left out all the comprehensive references to studies. I need to revist the third part of the book, which was a practical toolkit.

Open Education Practioner badge ideas

22 Apr 2015 in Blog Tagged:

Whilst posting my sketchnotes from the OER15 conf a good question was asked about how to share and attribute the pics I was posting on twitter. I realised that I didn’t have any licencing info on the notes so rectified that by putting a ‘CC-BY’ on the sketchnotes, and creating a definitive place for them to live.

30 Mar 2015 in Sketchnotes Tagged: Books

Recently read ‘The Left Hand of Darkness’ by Ursula LeGuin, and frustrated with the amount of books I’ve read and enjoyed that have subsequently evaporated from my memory, I decided to sketchnote a summary of what I remembered immediately having finished convinced that it will ‘fix’ it more permanently.
