Tim Brown posted on LinkedIn:

To draw an idea accurately, certain decisions must be made that even the most precise language can overlook. The result of making that series of small decisions? You’re able to get to novel solutions more quickly.

Ideas for what we can draw:

  • Your dream classroom you wish you had when you went to school
  • A vision of what students should understand and be able to do by the end of a unit of study and a map of how they will get there
  • Visual problem analysis of something that you wish were different
