The follow quote from the website says it all...

 

"The focus of web accessibility is often on web development – the things that happen in HTML, CSS, or JavaScript after a site has been designed visually. Optimal accessibility should start much earlier, as part of the visual design process. We have created an infographic that highlights a few important principles of accessible design."

Cyberbullied – From The Playground To The Web

Cyberbullied – From The Playground To The Web | technologies | Scoop.it

Although not a limiting grade anymore, ensuring your learners are safe, when using tecnology (social Media), is still an important part of education.

 

The explosive growth of social media in recent years has enabled a lot of new opportunities for learners — sharing achievements with family, making plans with new friends and re-living past memories with old friends, just to name a few.

 

The proliferation of social networking also comes with an unfortunate downside.

 

Bullying and nastiness become easier when all they take is a few keystrokes and can be hidden by online anonymity.

 

This post and the infographic raise awareness of the downside. What are your learners doing to protect their younger brothers, sisters, etc.?

Michael Yang's curator insight, May 12, 2015 11:54 AM

This is a flow chart infographic. It does a great job with breaking visuals up into subcategories, like a flow chart. However,  there are too many subcategories, which can be confusing to whoever is looking at the infographic.

Molly Frances Sheridan's curator insight, May 13, 8:48 PM

This is obviously a flow chart infograph. I think they did a nice job with the layout but probably could've included less things in it so that it wouldn't be so overwhelming looking.
