33 Graphic Design Tools To Publish Visual Content

by TeachThought Staff

Digital literacy is, in part, about digital publishing.

Digital publishing is, in part, about the writing process–choosing an audience and purpose, drafting content, revising and editing that content, and then sharing it with the world.

But digital publishing is also about the right tools for the right platform and the right device. Education is no different; digital publishers in your classroom need the right tools to do amazing things. The pathway from idea to socializing has been lubricated by incredible technology. In fact, that’s a key theme of progressive technology: It makes new things possible.

If you think this isn’t true, sit down to create a book cover with Microsoft Word instead of Adobe InDesign. Or a stunning video game with Scratch instead of Unity. Tools matter.

In an era of digital literacy and digital publishing comes a new genre–visual content. Memes. eCards. Blogs. Gifs. Inspirational quotes. From magazine layouts to pinterest fodder, “visuals” are a new genre gifted from the ease of digital publishing and sharing.

So this list of graphic resources from Kimberly Reynolds for visual content fits right in this context–for you as a teacher, or your students as creators.
