Students in Mrs. Lori Shively's Multimedia course recently completed a fun and engaging project that allowed the students to express their creativity and demonstrate their prowess in using Adobe Photoshop and other image editing software. As we approach the mid-point of the school year it's not too early for students to start thinking about next year's schedule. With 77.3 percent of Americans using the internet and over 122 million domains registered worldwide, the demand for individuals skills in interactive media is high. Multimedia would be a good option for those students who desire to pursue a career in digital media. "Several colleges claim that if students have experience with these digital tools during high school, they will be ahead of the curve when they attend a higher learning institution," stated Mrs. Shively. Tools used in Southern Columbia Area's digital media classes include Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, Flash, Dreamweaver, and Premiere. The photo above was created by senior student John Wilson (far right) and also includes Boys Varsity Basketball Coach Joe Britto and junior student Joe Davis (both far left).
