As part of today’s presentation on teaching Visual Literacy through Digital Scrapbooking, I made up a few scrapbook pages to show different ways teachers could incorporate digital scrapbooking into their courses. I made these pages using Stampin’ Up’s My Digital Studio. At the end of my presentation I will be demoing how to use the software, as well.
If your students need to do a family history report, a family tree, immigration report, homeland report, or report on a historical time period, a heritage style scrapbook would be a great way to present the information. This is an actual picture of my great great grandmother and her three daughters.
Any type of biography would make a great digital scrapbook. You can find a lot of historical photographs and documents online at the American Memory Collection. Below is a scrapbook page about the world famous aviatrix, Bessie Coleman. (It also was created for this week’s Stampin’ Addicts Scrapbook Sketch Challenge.)
The final page I wanted to show you could be used for a book report. How great would it be to have a every student in the class do a two-page spread as a book report, then make them all into one book that students could look through when they wanted to find something to read? I would love to put something like that in my library!
What other ideas do you have for digital scrapbooking in the classroom?
