Dual code graphic recording of TEDx event in Delhi turns out be amazing experience for both creator and participants
Recently, for a TEDx IITD event, the graphic recording of the proceedings was done by the dual-code expert and sketch-note artist, Deepak Arora ? a Delhi based medical physicist who is popularizing this kind of easy to understand illustrative documentation.

"It was second year in row, TEDx that the graphic recording session with diversified speakers and new bunch of speakers which was an amazing experience for the self and the participants with a continual visual journey," informed Arora along with sending a few pictures.

"In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized," informs the organization.

I too have been advocating the dual code communication for education of children with special needs and found it good for inclusive education settings too since over seventy of diverse learners are visual learners.

I have prepared the guidelines for dual code worksheet for borderline differently abled children which go as follows: 1. Identify the main textual material. 2. Adapt the text code by creating short sentences. 3. Use common words in the sentences except the new terminology. 4. Convert pictures into visual codes to teach and explain. 5. Include successive drawing of visual code. 6. Prepare worksheet with adapted text and visual code 7. Reinforce the vocabulary by listing new words
