Digital Scrapbooking to Learn

Here is a great example of using digital scrapbooking in school work. Digital scrapbooking can be very motivating. Reluctant writers do better journaling a scrapbook page over writing a book report and some children thrive on working in digital or art  environment.

Not only is a  biography like this is  fun to make and share but the student is also learning design and layout that can be valuable in several areas in the work force or home business!

Here the journaling is a simple time line of Mark Twain’s life.

Students don’t need to write pages of information to learn. Summaries take thought and consideration. One must know how to coherently and succinctly identify the major points. A summary clarifies the main points of an idea, theory, plan, goal or event.

The quotes gives an idea of Twain’s personality.

More pages or more journaling could be added for more information. You could create an entire scrapbook on a person, event, or time period!

Imagine a scrapbook of pages like the one above documenting your child’s school work.

Software

You need a Photo Editing Program to digital scrapbook.  Examples of these are Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Photoshop Elements, Corel Paint Shop Pro, Ulead Photoimpact, and Microsoft Digital Image Pro.  Google’s Picasa is a great, free program to edit photos as well.

I recommend Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 (Win/Mac) it is $79 at Amazon. There are hundreds of video tutorials online that will teach you or your student how to digital scrapbook using Photoshop Elements.
