For my last blog i’ll be talking about inclusive design. in our field we deal with lots of cultures, in order to make collaborative projects you need to communicate with everyone, you cant just create for yourself. you need to look into it a lot, is your videos going to effect people with eye problems or prone to having seizures if so put warnings beforehand or make another version for those people. Is the font big enough for everyone to read is there and audio option for people who are visually impaired. before creating something you need to educate yourself about ones culture and race. learn what certain phrases and signs might mean in other countries. for example the peace signs in North Korea means something to do with violence. There are sites that talk about cultural appropriation, reinforcing stereotypes in depth. It is also good to get second opinions of your work just incase you’re not sure if something might be offensive.
We also took a test was put online by our teacher, there were many one was for race gender, weight, religion, disability and many more to check how biased or un biased our opinion were. we discussed about negative backlashes on work we created and how to respond to that, some of the points included : Stop talking ads tart listening, repeat after me “this isn’t about me” , intent doesn’t matter; actions matter, Apologize for your action, not just for their effects, Acknowledge your privilege and lastly educate yourself.
