Visual note-taking: listening, learning, remembering

I was lucky enough to be invited to speak at the local CASSA teaching conference, Oct 2015. The overall theme was "memory", and featured a great keynote talk from Prof. Susan Gathercole. The aim of my talk was just to introduce visual note-taking as a thing, and to encourage discussion of how teachers could begin to incorporate in the classroom.
