#EduDuctTape 📖 Sketchnote Chapter 10

This image shows the cover of the book Educational Duct Tape: An EdTech Integration Mindset. The cover is blue and shows the title in orange lettering on duct tape. It also shows the text "Your Guide to Selecting the Right Tools for Your Classroom" and includes Jake Miller's name.When I was a STEM teacher, my pedagogy, curriculum, and strategies were constantly evolving through a pattern that I call the Know Better, Do Better Cycle. It’s based on Dr. Maya Angelou’s famous quote “Do the best you can until you know better and then when you know better, do better.”

In Chapter 10, of Educational Duct Tape: An EdTech Integration Mindset I share how, after turning my STEM course into a student-paced one, I was able to uncover new opportunities for improvement. This chapter–and the sketchnote below–showcases one of those “opportunities”: occasionally, I didn’t discover that kids were confused until the very end of class! How exactly did I solve this problem? How did I do better? The sketchnote below gives you a peek, but you’ll have to grab your copy of the book to hear the full solution!

This sketchnote has the title "Classroom Walks, Quiet Students, and Dr. Angelou, Again." It also features the phrase "Know Better, Do Better Cycle." It shows a cycle of a laptop with the words "student paced course," a student saying "I don't understand," Jake shrugging his shoulders and saying "What can I do better?," and, finally, a Google Forms logo.
