Was honored to see my graphic recording featured on the TEDxPhilly homepage with the caption “Jonny Goldstein captures the essence of each speaker through sketching.” The event featured speakers talking about innovative projects springing from the fertile minds of residents of the USA’s 5th most populous metro region.

I am looking forward to participating in the Maryland Society for Educational Technology on April 12, 2011. The theme is “Breaking Boundries in a Digital World.”
I will be creating real time large scale visual notes during Science Leadership Academy Principal Chris Lehmann‘s keynote, and I will also lead 3 mini workshops on using pictures to explore projects that technology educators are involved in.
Below are my bio and abstracts of the sessions I will be part of.
Jonny Goldstein is passionate about helping groups and individuals build understanding through visual thinking.
Jonny is a keynote visualizer at conferences and meetings. He creates large scale visual notes of presentations and conversations in real time. He is a visiting instructor at University of the Arts Master of Industrial Design (MID) program in Philadelphia. Â He also consults with companies and nonprofits including Johnson & Johnson, Comcast, Human1.0, Â the Association of Pharmaceutical Meeting Planners, and the Sprout Fund.
In past incarnations he designed and managed an innovative technology education program for Vision Education and Media in New York City where his staff taught Bronx high school students how combine blogging and video production. Prior to that he taught music, art, and theater to grades 3-8 in the Abundant Waters after school program in Hells Kitchen, NYC.
During a stint in Washington DC, Jonny was on the front lines of sounding the alarm about the impending mortgage crisis as the producer of new media for the National Community Reinvestment Coalition.
He helped start a number of groups including DC Media Makers and VizThink Philly.
Jonny was a Fellow at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program where he received his master’s degree. He graduated Phi Beta Kappa with a degree in English from Colorado College. In between those degrees, Jonny studied art at the School of Visual Arts, Pratt Institute, and the Art Students League.
His lives in Pittsburgh and blogs regularly at http://envizualize.com/
Abstract: For General Session
Keynote Visualization of Chris Lehmann’s talk at the general session:
Jonny Goldstein will create large scale visual notes of Chris Lehmann’s keynote at the General Session as Chris talks. A digital image of the visual notes will be provided to the conference organizers afterward and will also be viewable on http://envizualize.com
Abstract: Introduction to Visual Sensemaking For Technology Educators
Looking for new ways to get a grip on challenging projects? This might be the session for you.
In this fast-paced session participants will use visual frameworks to explore a project of their choice. Jonny Goldstein will demonstrate visual frameworks to examine the who/what, when, where, how much/how many, how, and why of any project. Participants will then apply these frameworks to examine their projects, and share their explorations with a partner. The goal of this exercise is to help participants understand the various facets of their projects better through simple but powerful drawings, with the hope that this understanding will help them better contribute to their projects’ success.
No drawing experience required!

Just came back from a visit to the Science Leadership Academy high school in center city Philadelphia. I was a guest instructor in Marcie T. Hull’s art class where I gave a demonstration of graphic recording (AKA visual notetaking).
I also got a tour from SLA Princicipal Chris Lehmann. His pride in his students and staff was as evident for his love for the same. I got to talk with an engineering teacher and a couple of science teachers as well. Everyone seemed to love being there.
On the way out I heard an engineering student from Drexel explaining how wastewater is collected, channeled and disposed of in Philadelphia to a throng of students, who then set out around the neighborhood to do primary research on drainage systems in the area.
Had a wonderful time interacting with the students and staff at Science Leadership Academy. Hope to be back soon.

This a slideshow of some of the large scale visual notes I created onstage at TEDxPhilly last Thursday. I had a fantastic time visualizing presentations, sharing the stage with people like Stephen Powers, Christin O’Keefe Aptkowicz, Stanford Thompson, and an array of other of Philadephia’s most creative social entrepreneurs, artists, scientists, and educators.
More large scale visual notes to come, as well as a more in depth blog post, later today. (Update, all the images are up now. I was not able to get a picture of Iyad Obeids talk so if you photographed that one and could send me a copy, I’d be much obliged.)
If you are from the press (or anywhere else for that matter) and would like a larger version image of any of these, email me at jonny(at)envizualize.com and I’ll send you one. Or feel free to use them as is. That goes for bloggers too.

I had an amazing experience creating real time large scale visual notes of the conversations ricocheting around the room at the 2010 Collaborative Innovation Forum. Enovia brought together peers, partners, and customers from companies diverse as GE Energy and Under Armour to discuss how hyper-sociality impacts their organizations’ product and process innovation. The event was expertly emceed by Ed Moran, Deloitte’s Director of Insights and Innovation and the team fluently orchestrated by Human 1.0‘s team.
I also really enjoyed the company of the team of innovation oriented bloggers who did real time commentary on the sessions.
Here are images of all the large scale visualizations I created from the event. click on them to see larger sized versions.

It’s shaping up to be a busy November. I am currently in Orlando, Florida, as keynote visualizer at the Collaborative Innovation Forum, and in a week and a half I will be in Philly doing the same thing at TEDxPhilly. Immediately following TEDxPhilly, I will be teaching a two day workshop for the MID (masters of industrial design) program at University of the Arts on graphic facilitation.
These events actually have quite a bit in common. They are all geared toward inspiring innovation, be it in business, social, or artistic fields.
The Collaborative Innovation Forum looks at how our hyper social environment impacts collaboration and innovation. The event is being catalyzed by Enovia, a collaborative product lifecycle management company, and brings together many of its partners —spanning a power generation company to a recreational equipment retailer to an electric car company and many more, to talk about our socially networked present and its implications for the future of product lifecycle management.
Product lifecycle management (PLM) is (from Wikipedia):
The process of managing the entire lifecycle of a product from its conception, through design and manufacture, to service and disposal. PLM integrates people, data, processes and business systems and provides a product information backbone for companies and their extended enterprise.
OK, does that sound cool or what? People, data, processes, business systems to create the information backbone to design and make and recycle/reuse/dispose of STUFF! The STUFF that makes civilization possible. The kind of stuff you are using to read this blog post.
2. TEDxPhilly is about what’s happening in our nation’s 5th biggest megalopolis, Philly. You know how I love Philly, so I’m so excited to be part of this. My dear friend Roz Duffy is applying her curatorial touch to make this the event of the year in Philly. From the site:
Our goal is to showcase practitioners, makers, dreamers and thinkers who are contemporary and thought provoking; who are pushing the boundaries of their own disciplines; and who are working towards a more purposeful, socially responsible future. The event is multi-disciplinary by nature and the speakers echo the diverse perspectives present in our city.
TEDxPhilly happens November 18. If you want to tap into the intellectual, creative, social, can-do soul of Philly, be there. It’s going to be Philly’s event of the year.
3. MID. The MID program at University of the Arts prepares masters degree candidates to use design approaches to help improve social enterprises as well as industrial ones:
Because today, industrial design is no longer just about new products. Itâ€™s about a new way of thinking. One that allows us to step back and question everything, including what a â€œproductâ€ is. By expanding our definition beyond the traditional â€“ to encompass policies, social initiatives and entire systems â€“ weâ€™re setting the stage for design to play a crucial role in society. Itâ€™s already become an integral part of the business worldâ€™s approach to innovation. At UArts, we help prepare students for this dynamic, demanding new landscape.
I will be teaching MID students to use hands on visual thinking to help their clients in government, nonprofit, and business organizations innovate better ways to serve their stakeholders.
Whew! I need to take a breath. I will need plenty of oxygen and caffeine to embrace the possibilities in front of me this month. Happy November!
