Make a visual!
Start date: May 1, 2016,
End date: Apr 30, 2017
»Make it visual!« is a training course about visualisation and use of visual tools. There are so many different tools available for visualisation, but nowhere on the internet can one find a descriptive list of them, as to decipher the incomprehensible expressions (graphic recording, sketch noting, visual or graphic facilitation, visual messaging, graphical snapshots, templates, mind maps, stencils, lettering, calligraphy, etc.). Finding these expressions in our mother tongues is an even harder task. This is why partners from Slovenia, Estonia, Hungary, Poland, France, Germany, Italy, Slovakia and Norway decided to organise a training course for 20 youth workers, trainers and other staff members from our organisations, where we will show, how to start with simplified drawings and try out some of the visual tools which can help us improve the quality of our educational and youth work. You probably did not know that you can increase your capacity of memorising data by 40% with the correct use of visual tools. After the end of the project, we will organise an online follow up to help our participants remember more new knowledge and skills and offer them mentorship to help them prepare for the implementation of workshops for other staff from their organisations, as well as other youth organisations in their local environment. All newly gained knowledge will be gathered on our new website, with photos, videos and other visual material and translated to our mother tongues. With this project, we would like to spread the knowledge and practical use of visual tools in non-formal education. Everybody can draw, what are you waiting for?
