What are Pixanotes?

Simply put, Pixanotes are a combination of left brain structured notes with right-brain visuals.

Sketch notes have been all the rage because our brains are primarily image processors (not word processors) but sketch notes lack structure for students who are left brained or who struggle with focus.

I thought there had to be a better way to integrate both sides of the brain and reach all learners so that's when I started my research and Pixanotes were born!

Based on this brain research, Pixanotes contribute to the increase of student comprehension and recall! 



Pixanotes work for ALL learners!  That's because they come in FOUR formats so you can differentiate content for each student.

This first page would be for the learners who need the most support.  They would highlight key words and color the pictures.

They can add examples below the content & even write questions beneath the flaps that can be answered by the content on the right.



This notes page has just a little less structure but with the exact same content.   

Learners will highlight key words and then match up picture flaps to the correct information.

They can also write questions beneath the picture flaps that can be answered by the content on the right.








This version has a bit less structure but again has the exact same content.

This allows the learner to fill in the blanks with pre-printed picture flaps that still can be colored.  

Students can also write questions that can be answered by the content on the right under the flaps.









This last version has the least amount of structure and is for use by most general education students.  Of course it has the exact same content as the other 3 versions but has fill-in-the-blanks and places for picture flaps. 

Students will fill in the blanks using a word bank (and maybe a partner) or a PowerPoint.  Then they will match up the picture flaps, color them and glue them into place.  

Under the flaps they can write questions that can be answered by the content on the right.
