Webinar Recording: Draw Your Notes: Yes, You Can Draw

Header image flexed arm, a brain, an eye, a hand, someone thinking about a cat while writing out cat on paper, and ALPHABET written out; text reads Draw Your Notes: Yes, You Can Draw with Tim May, Creative Director, a webinar from Think 21 Wacom Edu Summit. A purple flag with an icon of a play button denotes that this was a guest webinar with video recording.

In this dynamic, custom, hand-drawn presentation, XPLANE Creative Director Tim May illustrates the value of integrating drawing into higher education. May’s presentation style exemplifies how the very act of drawing creates engagement for learners. His approach to visual language mirrors the acquisition of parallel language skills (spoken language, music, programming) with a focus on developing a level of literacy.


In this recording, Tim presents a number of concrete use cases educators can employ as they start a path toward making the content of their instruction more engaging and enjoyable.
