My daughter, who is in the 8th grade, was making an autobiographical poster of herself as a part of an English assignment. As she hacked up her magazines and printed pictures off the computer to paste on her project, I couldn’t help wondering if what I was watching would someday be a lost art.
Tonight, as I was reading comments posting on a social networking site, a lady from the US posted a link about a site called Glogster where you can make online interactive posters that can incorporate sound, video and lots of cool design features.
It is worth taking a moment to view some of the compelling student examples that are listed! I especially love the Itzak Stern one.
And I can’t help thinking that if my daughter’s poster was digital, I would not still be vacuuming bits of Tiger Beat.
