Print Media Class Attends Yearbook Conference
On Tuesday, September 10, Nebraska Christian’s print media class joined sixteen other Nebraska schools at the Walsworth Yearbook Workshop in Columbus. The class went to learn new things to incorporate in the school yearbook. Miss Becky Ritta (’99), yearbook adviser, said, “This year, we’re going to focus more on good photography. We know the students are most interested in pictures, and we want to fill the book with great photos, so we went to the workshop hoping to learn some tips for taking great pictures and emphasizing them in the book.”
A new cool feature that will enhance the focus on photography in this years’ yearbook is something called “Aurasma.” Aurasma is a free app that you can download onto your smart device. Certain photos in the book will be linked to videos in Aurasma, so when you scan these photos with your phone or tablet, the connected video will play on your screen. The class learned several ways to implement Aurasma at the conference.
Following their day spent learning yearbook techniques, the class came back to school energized and ready to create a unique book for the student body. Editor ShayeLeigh Cooper said, “You’re going to be able to judge this book by its cover.”
