I learn best when I'm listening while I draw. I always struggled in school because teachers saw this as "goofing off."

Luckily for me, I'm now on the twelve grade. Passed ALL my classes. Although I AM a goof-off EVEN when I work on my computer.

I found I also learned best while I was listening and drawing. However, my school was full of teachers who didn't give a crap about anything.

We wanna know stuff, and sometimes schools refuse to do that.

Same here! I can't concentrate if I'm not doodling. It keeps my hands busy, so I can listen without fidgeting. Jeez, 18 and I still fidget in class.

Anyway, doodling promotes learning (if you can draw without thinking too hard) because it keeps your hands busy, keeps your brain moving, and information that's said by the teacher gets processed and absorbed easier.

I'm not scolded anymore though; mostly because I keep my grades up, but that's because when there's a lecture on something like the battle of Waterloo in history, my notes will have little napoleons marching around the page building his notebook paper empire. But NONETHELESS! I remembered the little napoleons for the test. :3

SO LET THEM DOODLE!!!
