BCM325: Another Look at Peer Commentary

Welcome to my first blog post for BCM325. 

This week we focused on the inherent value of providing peer feedback. In doing so, I revisited the subject’s marketing criteria to present some well discussed feedback for 3 of my peers. 

Every semester we’re asked to do a blog post of this nature and it always helps me to form a better understanding of the task at hand. I always find this peer commentary blog post to be refreshing, guiding me through the range and depth of my peers and what interests them. I often find that there are varied perspectives and ideas drawn from the subject content, which are interpreted differently and vastly which allows me to improve my own knowledge, and therefore my work as a whole.

Here is a quick summary of each students Digital Artefact:

Pitch Review 1: Life on a Page 

Jess’s digital artefact ranges across a number of platforms, as she showcases her journey through reading and rating different types of books. 

Below is the summary of feedback I gave Jess:

  • Commended her on the excellent presentation of her content
  • Excellent background research and well developed DA that purposely addressed new future framework
  • I liked the incorporation of multiple social media accounts to explore this bookstagram theme (Instagram, TikTok, Blog)
  • Her future component was relevant for real life public utility (her future career)
  • I suggested a blog which may be useful for her DA that focused on a range of interviews of people on Bookstagram

Pitch Review 2: ZandaJW Esports

Alex is continuing with a past DA in running a YouTube, Instagram and Tiktok account that focus on Esports.

Summary of the feedback:

  • Commended his passion for this topic
  • Recommended an article on the future if esports and also influencers in esports
  • Asked how he plans to promote his content and if he has noticed any feedback loops in the content he has already posted.
  • Insisted he should show a timeline for this project

Pitch Review 3: Cyber Implants

Anthony’s pitch clearly demonstrated his curiosity with the futures component, as he delved into the world of cyber implants over video essays on YouTube.

Feedback Summary:

  • Interesting topic which is very futuristic, applies to BCM325 incredibly well
  • Commended the way he broke down each concept into the slides very casually and confidently
  • Asked what way was he planning to present his content stance wise (factual/for or against)
  • Recommended resource of fellow BCM students experience with cyber chips and the discussion behind that concept
  • Asked about the types of platforms he may decide to engage with and promote his content
  • Asked about his measurements of success for the DA

In undertaking this task, a wave of inspiration came over me in how I could effectively improve my own work. It helped me to understand how to address the futures component more thoroughly and provided me with new insights into how the futures component can be effectively addressed.
