Recently, I shared a sketchnote about the Know Better, Do Better Cycle. My first “Know Better, Do Better” step was realizing that my teacher-paced course wasn’t working. So I turned it into a student-paced course. Then, as that sketchnote showcased, I discovered that I wasn’t noticing all students’ questions and struggles quickly enough. So, I added a Google Form.
This new sketchnote shows the next iteration of that cycle. I discovered that some of my students were stressed out by the idea of managing their own pace in my class. This sketchnote hints at my solution: a calendar.
The most important part, though, is the reminder on the left: Being impressive is not the goal. Being effective is.
