It started as a fun thing to do on a whim. I saw a tweet from @HeckAwesome and thought, “Why not? I’ll sign up!” By the way, if you don’t follow @HeckAwesome, yet, you need to do that immediately.
I like to sketch, draw, and doodle. Never did I imagine the community-building aspect this would provide.
After signing up, I received an email on January 10th with my team members’ names; @foglia_mario, @MistyKluesner, @mrs_m_granger, @gadgetsgarcia, @AnnBruckerTIS, and our Team Leader @mospillman. I WAS FIRST ON THE LIST! I was hesitatant and a little nervous to be the first sketchnoter, but after seeing the talent on my team, I was thrilled that I was first.
The sketchnote started, and was passed along throughout the day bouncing all over the world.
Below is the final product of Team 10!
This reminded me that sometimes the things that may appear small have a large impact. Due to #passthesketchnote I followed many folks that I hadn’t followed, yet. My PLN became stronger. I was challenged and inspired to grow. These are the types of experiences I want for both my staff members and my students.
Many thanks to @HeckAwesome and @mospillman for a great day on January 11!
What are some activities that at first seemed “small”, but that after implementing had large impacts on your classroom or school community?
