My experience with the Sketch50 movement

I had an amazing experience through my participation in the sketch50 movement from March 27, 2017 to April 15, 2017. I learned about the event from one of  Wanda Terral's tweets. Sketch50 was an initiative launched by a number of teachers through social media. It mainly addressed educators and students. The aim was to sketch something related to a daily prompt we were given for a period of 50 days. I resorted to a google calendar displaying each day's prompt and also to the relevant tweets with the prompts by Sketch50. The hashtag we used on twitter was #sketch50.

In the beginning I felt I would not manage it at all. My coparticipants' likes and some retweets encouraged me to continue and reach the end of this great journey. Picking the app that suited you and learning how to use it was a great challenge at the beginning. The apps I personally used included Loose Leaf, Adobe illustrator Draw and last but not least Paper by 53.


🙂I enriched my PLN as I met so many bright and like-minded people on twitter! Some of them include:

🙂I liked the fact I got a badge for each theme I completed at https://www.badgelist.com/Sketch50-2017

🙂I enjoyed the great finale with Sylvia Duckworth's sketchnoting live presentation which has been available by EdTechTeam Live here.

🙂I used my imagination to develop ideas through sketching and I became more creative.

🙂I got more observant about objects around me. Have you ever thought how fast we are walking by objects around us without noticing them?

🙂 I started instilling my passion for sketchnoting in my students!

Here are my sketches 1-50 on each day's prompt:
