Synergy Designs a Mobile App and Five Videos Featured in Condition of Education Report Release

This year’s House and Senate briefings on The Condition of Education, a congressionally mandated report released by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), featured a mobile application and five videos created by the Synergy Enterprises, Inc. (SEI) design team. At the briefings, NCES overviewed changes to the report release, including a redesign of the report web page. The 2013 report features four chapters and four spotlights on current policy issues, including employment rate trends, kindergarten entry status (academic “red shirting”), the status of rural education, and postsecondary education financing. SEI project directors DeLicia Ballard, Sean Grobe, and Gordana Vukovic attended the briefings.

In April 2013, SEI won a National Association of Government Communicators Award of Excellence for work on The Condition of Education 2012, which the design team enhanced by creating a supplemental video summary and e-book.
