Everyones D.A ideas are so vastly different both in topic but also in presentation. Being able to comment on my peers work gave me a new understanding of where they see the future being in 5, 10 or even 20 years time.
My first comment was for Emma who was planning to cohost a podcast to empower women regarding the conversation of sex, and move society forward to a future where this topic can be openly talked about. The feedback I provided her was mainly on what the topics of the podcasts were going to be, since this was directly clarified. I linked an example of what I think about when people mention women talking about sex. Here I mentioned how the topics are almost scripted and don’t cover what people actually want to know. The format she’s chosen will allow for conversations to begin organically. Lastly, I mentioned posting the podcast on a site like Reddit, where the audience will be very honest.
My second comment was for Thomas and his topic was covering Video Assistant Refereeing (VAR) in soccer. There are many points to cover surround this topic that Thomas mentioned that would be great avenues to explore. The feedback I provided him was mainly on how he was going to present his findings, since he was going to be posting topics of conversation on Reddit, and encouraging people to talk about their thoughts. Since I knew nothing of this topic I provided him with an article that I read, to help me gain a further understanding to what he was trying to articulate. Lastly in Toms video, he mentioned that he thought the VAR technology would be ‘here to stay’ in the world of soccer, I commented that once he gained a new level of understanding from Reddit would his option still be the same?
My third comment was for Isaac who’s D.A was adding a podcast to the work he already does within the local scene. Here, the podcast would tackle the important topic of mental health. The feedback I provided Isaac was more about the podcast itself as it wasn’t really specified what exactly he was doing. I asked about the duration and scheduling of the podcast and if he would be able to get artists from the local music scene to participate. Since our society is in social isolation, the conversation around mental health is extremely important now. This podcast will provide people with a platform to talk about mental health openly. I provided Isaac with an article on how to talk about mental health correctly.
Being able to reflect on my peers work was a great way to offer an outsiders option on their work. Constructive criticism is way of offering a helping hand to those around you. The feedback I tried to provide was to help the individual move further with their project effectively. I also learnt just how broad the topic of Future Cultures is and how these 3 individuals interpreted the assignment to fit their interests.
