I recently found my high school yearbook online. It is almost 50 years old and yes, I am not a spring chicken. As you can imagine, it was interesting to take a walk down memory lane.
As I scrolled through the pages, our introduction to the yearbook caught my attention. What follows are a couple screen shots.
This was followed by several photographs of high school life over the preceding year.
Even some 50 years ago there was text inserted with pictures. I can’t say this was the first time it was done. We didn’t predate cave inscriptions or hieroglyphics, but it was a different way of presenting information.
There are a variety of software programs, apps and picture dictionaries that are now available to help students and individuals grasp content.
Technology has taken it even further with the introduction of the Emoji, Bitmoji, Memoji, Animoji and just about any other Moji you can think if.
So, if this was my yearbook today, what might it look like?
However, for me there’s nothing like the original.
