Remixable Graphics: Imagining educators as designers

This session will explore some of the thinking that went into the designs for the Security Education Companion (a teaching-oriented expansion of EFF’s Surveillance Self-Defense project: sec.eff.org). We will share some of the reasoning behind design decisions. For example, we will explore the vision for providing textless versions of graphics and for creating generic interfaces for non-existent tools. We will also explore what inclusion might mean on the device level: software people may have natively on their computers, what software users have exposure to, what accessibility constraints people might have, and so on.

In the remaining time, we will present the following problem for the audience: as content creators, how do we structure our materials so that our users (trainers and teachers) don’t need to know how to use proprietary software to remix, repurpose, translate and localize educational graphics and handouts? How do we make it as painless as possible for non-designers to easily remix instructional designs?
We will guide a design brainstorm with the audience about “remixable graphics” might mean for the future, and how to factor in users’ familiarity with tools. We would like this to be an active brainstorming session.
