Post-Its are the New Medium

I think I’m on to something: Post-It notes make great note presentation media for the web. My classroom blog is designed to include lecture notes for the students — but I didn’t want to have to prepare pages of lecture notes every day.

For a time, I tried putting the notes directly in the blog. Problem is text-only notes are boring to read because nothing pops out at you.

Then, I tried using colored fine-point Sharpies on Post-It notes. The results are beautiful and have a whimsical feel. Not to mention that I get to sketch right there on the note. Examples are below.

I was heavily inspired by the website for a book, No One Belongs Here More Than You by Miranda July as well as this Power Point show by Leisa Reichelt.

How do you present information to students in an eye-catching way?
