Drawing in situNorthern Voice: Rachel Smith on graphic recording on the iPad

Share |

Graphic recording has long held a certain fascination for me: the idea of capturing the ideas and emotions of a speech, workshop or meeting on paper, as the event progresses. (Nancy White's graphic record of my Northern Voice keynote last year remains one of my happiest public speaking experiences.)

Rachel Smith of the New Media Consortium delivered a quick but info-packed presentation at MooseCamp on graphical recording on the iPad - which is a pretty good answer to the question "If Rob could attend any conceivable session at Northern Voice, what would it be about?" She's one of the leading lights in the field, and she's understandably jazzed about the iPad's potential.

Unlike me, she doesn't use a stylus; because she works in so many colours, it's inconvenient to have to put it down, swipe to bring up a colour chooser, and pick it up again.

Here are my notes - drawn, naturally, on an iPad. (The resources I noted from her and Nancy are The Grove Consultants, Nancy Marguiles and the term "digital scribing" - Rachel suggested Googling it would produce much win.)
