Portraits of Learning: We Celebrate Student Achievement in Digital Photography and Image Editing


Thatcher, Michelle, Technology & Learning


In our third annual Portraits of Learning student photography contest, Technology & Learning editors were overwhelmed by both the quantity and the quality of submissions. As we examined more than 200 digital photos from students across the country, we had a hard time holding back out exclamations of wonder and delight. In many cases the contest theme, "learning with technology," was personified by the entrants themselves: most of the winning photos were snapped with digital cameras, and almost all were digitally enhanced using photo editing software.

There were far more print-worthy entries than we could fit on our pages, but the winners we selected in each of three grade levels (elementary, middle, and high school) demonstrated artistic and technical sophistication well beyond their years. Turn the page and join us in recognizing the accomplishments of these talented students.
