ERIC Guides - Graphic Design, 508 Compliance, and Writing Effective Newsflashes
Three new guides offer guidance on navigating 508 compliance, using graphic design, and writing effective newsflashes to create engaging products.
The graphic design guide covers concepts behind good design and how to use photographs, images, color, tables, figures, and type to create useful publications and digital products. It also touches on how researchers can use data visualization to make complex concepts accessible.
The 508 guide offers tips and tools for making materials, including presentations, websites, and multimedia products, accessible.
The newsflash guide reviews how to break through clutter with a compelling story, engaging visuals, and electronic tools, including email, video, and social media.
The guides were prepared for the Institute of Education Sciences' Regional Educational Laboratories.
