In all three of my comments I believe that I did a good job of reminding what the marking criteria is and what the question posed was for us to focus our Digital Artifact on. I gave positive reinforcement and pointed out all of the successful things that the projects had going for them. I did not do any independent research to give them on their subjects, even if some of them were lacking background research but did suggest that they look into academic sources regarding their DA themselves. My comments were on the shorter end and providing some background research would have provided the poster some extra assistance.
I gave all of the posters individual suggestions on how to work with their project going forward. I believe that my suggestions did a good job of following the poster’s line of thinking about their interests and giving them my opinions on how to continue developing an interesting DA. I could have provided more than one suggestion for each poster to give them more feedback to work with epically if they don’t like the one suggestion I gave them. My suggestions themselves could have been more specific as well. Some of the pitches were rather broad and so I kept my suggestions rather broad as well. Having such broad topics, more specific, one-channel suggestions could have helped the posters zero in how exactly they want to address the future segments of 5, 10, and 20 years.
In each of my comments I spent a few sentences summarizing their pitch to ensure that we were both on the same page. I think it was effective to ensure that when reading my comments, they know what I think their DA is that is being pitched so they can understand where my comments and suggestions came from.
The more through the pitch was the easier it was to give feedback on their presentation and help give them suggestions and comments on how to produce their best version of the DA that they can. I found it difficult on the broader, less informed pitches to fully understand what was being pitched and how to constructively help the poster continue to develop their thoughts and ideas.
Overall, I think that my comments successfully reminded the posters of the marking criteria for the DA and reminded them to continue thinking on the path of how their topic will look at the future 5, 10, and 20 years from now. While I gave suggestions, I could have given more than a single one per post and done some of my own background research to help the posters get a broader range of information.
