PBS World Explorers Video Sketchnotes

IMG_6178IMG_6174As a part of our sketchnote unit, students watched videos from the PBS World Explorers Videos series and then selected one video to illustrate by creating a digital sketchnote. The sketchnote strategy is an excellent way to help students focus on, process, and remember content while watching media. Students created their sketchnotes using iPads while watching the video on computers in the computer lab (see photos above), but this could just as easily be done with the video playing for the entire class using a projector. Students used a variety of apps including:

Here are the sketchnotes that the students created:
