ABOUT THE BOOK
Draw to Learn
A guide for teachers and leaders who aspire to create curious and collaborative learning cultures using Graphic Facilitation
‘Draw to Learn’ offers practices and processes for how to create Meaningful Learning Communities and illustrates how Graphic Facilitation can be a powerful and playful tool to offer shared clarity, support clear communication and invite participation inside and outside the classroom.
Change is a natural and inevitable part of our personal and professional life.
At times we consciously bring about change and sometimes change is imposed or invited from outside. No matter how change comes about, it is our experience that more often than not, we are challenged when we are required to change, develop and practice new ways of working. At the same time we acknowledge that change is at the heart of what it means to be a learner and to grow as a human being.
In the book we will dig into and unfold what Meaningful Learning Communities are, and how Graphic Facilitation can support you in creating the optimal conditions for these communities to thrive in an educational context. We are introducing visual methods that can be used to visualise learning processes and learning strategies, create clarity around objectives and progression as well as invite students and teachers to contribute with their own knowledge and competences. These methods can build an enriching, inspiring and motivating learning environment where children and adults alike can acquire and create new knowledge and competences together.
In the book you will find visual templates, DIY drawing exercises, cases from the classroom, an extensive icon library and inspiration for how you can use Graphic Facilitation in your daily work to create inspiring and collaborative learning environments.
