Digital Asset Published 8/25/13 Last updated on 5/16/18

Students studying Consumer Choice in the NSW Commerce curriculum are assigned a task of creating an electronic magazine to share their learning with other students of a similar age in an accessible and motivating way. Creating the cover using Photoshop adds skills to their toolbox which may be useful to create other pages too.

Thank you Jenny, you have saved me a lot of time. This is sophisticated too, not just a magazine cover.

This is a great idea for engaging this age group in the subject matter. It would be much better to create the magazine cover in Adobe InDesign which is the industry standard for publication layout.

It is great that you used the combination of research, media, photoshop, etc. to engage the students into learning about consumer issues as well as produce an informative magazine with PS that address it. Very inspirational!

I really like that you have your students use Photoshop to create their cover! Not only will they be using the quintessential software tool but I am sure the creativity is overflowing.
