I came across this video on the benefits of doodling while looking for activities for my art room the other day and thought it was very interesting. As a visual/kinesthetic learner I felt that adding drawings or doodles to my notes helped me learn information better, and it was always more fun. But, as I’ve gotten older I’ve also felt that doodling in public is thought of as kind of childish or that people thought I wasn’t actually listening to them during presentations or such. This definitely helps justify the humble doodle. So go forth my friends and doodle away! You know I will.
