Challenge #10 is about being hyperaware of what you are cognitively thinking and choosing to do while you are sketchnoting. Begin by asking yourself to draw a small- or medium-sized circle somewhere on a digital screen or blank piece of paper and label the circle: My Comfort Zone.
Next, reflect on the question: what would you draw inside the circle that represents your comfort zone as a learner? (Note: the question can be broad, or can include a more- specific ending, such as …as a learner of music? …as a reader?) When ready, draw their images using either the digital tools or analog sketching resources (e.g., colored pencils, crayons, pens, erasers).
For the second round, pose yourself the question: what magical moments have happened when you have pushed yourself to go outside of your comfort zone as a learner? (If extending the question, include the specific focus: …as a learner of reading?) Add to your sketchnote by doodling your responses using drawings and/or text.
When done with this round, place your signature and date somewhere on their sketchnote. Share your sketchnote via social media (hashtag #documenting4learning) and/or on your blog. Share also your reflection of the sketchnoting activity.
● Why did you choose the objects, shapes, drawings, and placement of information to convey your ideas and intended message?
● What were you thinking about while doodling that caused you to connect your past experiences to the convey your intended message?
