VISUAL LANGUAGE FOR CLASSROOM LEARNING AND LIFE Join best-selling author and global infodoodler Sunni Brown for a hands-on, interactive experience designed to unlock your native capacity to create and apply visual language for better thinking and faster problem-solving. Based on a book called The Doodle Revolution featured in The New York Times, Fast Company and Oprah, this session will take students all the way from the basics of visual language to a form of visual note-taking that supports learning and comprehension, memory, concentration, engagement and effective presentation. Use “infodoodling" to learn more effectively, get relevant insights and dive into your world in an entirely different way. Students will use the museum to practice their infodoodling skills while learning about various stories in African American history. Non-artists are not only welcomed but will receive exuberant high-fives for showing up. STUDENT TAKEAWAYS: • Classroom applications of doodling and visual notetaking • Visual-language techniques for innovation and creativity • Big-picture information mapping for communication and presentation • Group game immersion for exploring subject matters related to museum content
