Pupils are MaD for it!

When The Grange Comprehensive School in Runcorn decided to implement a new classroom rules policy for learners they got creative and let their students loose at the MaDLAB.

MaDLAB, the brainchild of Stuart Atherton, managing director of creative design agency Media and Digital Ltd (MaD), allows learners and teaching staff to collaborate with creative experts in a working environment.

After a quick-fire session with the MaD team of digital designers, copywriters and photographers they set to work; composing their own photoshoot, editing the images and adding striking graphics.

The aim of the session was not only to encourage a joint set of expectations between learners and teachers but to give students a unique insight into the graphic design industry.
Stuart suggests that “Using a collaborative approach provides a unique learning experience and provides ownership of the end product”.

One student said: “Today was amazing! My favourite part was when we got to put the lines on the picture to make it look animated, apparently I am a natural! My lifelong dream was to do something like this and today has confirmed that this is what I want to do.”

The policy has been implemented in the new school building, reinforcing the ongoing development of The Grange Comprehensive School.
