My students are really interested in the doodling movement. I have been reading Sunni Brown’s book The Doodle Revolution and I have shared how doodling can be connected to learning ( see this short TED Talk by Sunni Brown on her webpage). I have noticed that my students are just doodling, which is a good start, but it isn’t connected to learning or how they can help process information or even how to better commit new information to their working memory. This is something I am still learning about, but in the mean time, I thought my students and I might take the month of February to do a Doodle-A-Day to try and focus our creativity a little bit. To keep it fun, I picked up this book at Half Priced Books this weekend to help give us our prompts.
I also am going to link this blog post to help everyone get their supplies ready and to have some tips to think about as we start this adventure.
This will not be a mandatory adventure, this is a just for fun challenge!
