Visualizing, Storyboarding, Whiteboarding, & Showing How Great Ideas Happen

This is a great example of an emerging way to explain something by visualizing it on a whiteboard. Taking notes like this is so much more engaging for the brain to remember and connect with what was spoken or read. This is one of the best visualizations or animations of a book talk that I have seen. The key is they hyper-fast forward the drawing in the video so you see many more images than if you were just drawing in real time. This video is incredible…it so happens to be on a favorite topic of mine as well, Steven Johnson’s book Where Good Ideas Come From: The Natural History of Innovation
