About Footnotes

The Footnotes Programme is a flexible series of visual multilayered thinking techniques. They are straightforward to teach, easy to learn and highly adaptable to any individual or situation. This is being constantly proved. As Footnotes visual learning style strategies are increasingly applied to many aspects of community life all over the world. This global application is partly due to the lack of emphasis on words. This makes Footnotes particularly accessible in, and transferable to, any language.


It is so simple that sometimes people don’t always grasp how effective Footnotes is. Until they begin to use it. For others, it’s the thing they always knew, but never had the permission or framework to live and work in this way. We understand that we are all wonderfully unique  and it’s vitally important that we are able to communicate in our preferred way.

Grid System

Footnotes visual learning style strategies is made up of a set of drawing-related strategies that use a grid. This is using either paper or digital format to give people a different type of language based on images.  This enables people in finding their voice as they learn how to process inner thoughts and feelings. This without having to sequence ideas or choose words. This could later be given structure and translation in many different ways, including words, so it can be externalised to others.
