Drawing in Class


Published on

I used to get in trouble for drawing in class. I, like many others, find it easier to listen when I'm drawing. This presentation explains how drawing became a strength for my note-taking, rather than a detraction, and gives you some steps to get started along that road too. (Originally presented at TEDxUFM, Guatemala City, August 19, 2012.)
