Computer Ed Students of LVHS on Scrapbooking

Scrapbooking is a method for preserving personal and family history in the form of photographs, printed media, and memorabilia contained in decorated albums, or scrapbooks. The idea of keeping printed materials of personal interest probably dates to shortly after the invention of printing. This trend is probably similar for photographs. Historically, scrapbooking was a tradition similar to storytelling, but with a visual and tactile, rather than an oral, focus.
The advent of scanners, desktop publishing, page layout programs, and advanced printing options make it relatively easy to create professional-looking layouts in digital form. The internet allows scrapbookers to self-publish their work. Scrapbooks that exist completely in digital image form are referred to as "digital scrapbooks" or "computer scrapbooks.

My second year computer education class of the Lupon Vocational High School is doing a research on the following topics:
· Area Weather
· Churches in the Vicinity
· Municipal and Visitors information
· Tourism
· Municipal Organizations
· Schools in the Community
They are grouped into 6 to do the research, take pictures and documentation of the assigned topic. It’s a one-month project and they are going to use MS Word for the scrapbooking. They are free to use any software for photo editing.
