Can doodling in class help you remember the material better? Well, there is research that says perhaps it can. In art class we are always drawing so we don't think much about it. But there is growing interest in the power or doodling or visual note taking. Recently I was visiting a local bookstore and saw countless books highlighting the benefits of drawing and coloring. It is interesting because it doesn't take any fancy equipment, apps or special skills. Just a pencil and a piece of scrap paper....
