YearBook 2008

February 2, 2012 in DeskTop Publishing by Staff

This was the first year that the social project ‘Year Book’ was introduced. The social activity tasks students with the roles they would genuinely play if they worked for a publishing house. Each student is given a role within a team, such as sub-editor, journalist, photographer or designer. They create layouts using the skills they have developed with their previous projects. The Year Book project is an amalgamation of Vygotskian thought and Educational Progressivism as propagated by the American philosopher John Dewey. It illustrates how immersing students in real life scenarios can achieve outstanding results. All copy is produced by the students and all art work is original and created in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator.

The gallery below is a small selection of pages from the Year Book.
