Are you looking to enhance your study skills?
Looking for new ways to communicate with more clarity?
Full of creativity but no idea how to harness it?
We have an exciting opportunity for high school students like you!
Introducing our one-day Visual Thinking Skills workshop, designed to revolutionise the way you approach learning. Join us for a dynamic and engaging workshop designed specifically for S1-S6 students who want to learn how to study more effectively by harnessing the power of visual thinking techniques.
During this workshop, you'll embark on an engaging and interactive experience that will empower you to:
Learn how to effectively capture and organise information using sketches, diagrams, and visual metaphors. Studies have shown that visual aids enhance memory retention, making it easier to recall information during exams and assignments.
Develop the ability to convey complex information in a concise and engaging manner. Visual thinking and sketchnoting empower you to communicate your ideas visually, enabling clearer and more impactful presentations.
Develop the ability to break down complex concepts and make them more accessible through visual representations. By visually mapping out ideas, you'll grasp connections, patterns, and relationships between different topics more effortlessly.
Spark Your Creativity
Unleash your imagination and foster your creative thinking skills. Sketchnoting encourages a unique blend of artistic expression and analytical thinking, helping you approach problems from fresh perspectives and generate innovative ideas.
Discover effective note-taking strategies that enable you to capture key points and concepts rapidly. By combining text and visuals, you'll create visually rich notes that are concise, organized, and visually appealing.
No Artistic Talent Required
You truly don't need to know how to draw to take advantage of this skill. We have delivered visual thinking training to hundreds of people and if there's one thing we have learned - if you can hold a pen, we can teach you to draw.
Why Visual Thinking?
Let's face it, traditional studying methods can sometimes feel tedious and uninspiring. What if we told you there's a different way to learn; one that utilises your visual learning mode (preferred by 65% of the world's population)? During this workshop, you'll learn how to tap into your natural creativity and engage your visual learning mode to unlock your full potential.
This workshop isn't just about studying...
...it's also about having fun! We're great believers that if you're going to do something, you might as well enjoy it! We've infused this workshop with interactive games, competitions, and hands-on activities to keep your hands and minds engaged and motivated throughout.
But wait, there's more!
The skills learned during this workshop extend far beyond the boundaries of the classroom. Its benefits and applications reach into many aspects of life, making it an indispensable tool for personal and professional growth. So why limit yourself? Embrace the power of visual thinking and open the door to a world of possibilities.
"But I can't draw"
We hear you - and you're not alone in thinking this. Rest assured, you truly don't need to know how to draw to take advantage of this skill. We have delivered visual thinking skills training to hundreds of people and if there's one thing we have learned - If you can hold a pen, we can teach you to draw.
