My Contribution to the Conversation- Reflecting on My Live Tweeting (Pt.2)

ALINA HAGER

This blog post containing tweets and analysis is in regards to Live-tweeting exercises I have been participating in for the last 6 weeks for my Future Cultures class (BCM325).

The following tweets are a curation of some of my more significant contributions and interactions during the live tweeting of a weekly screening that explores the concept of the future. During the past 6 weeks our screenings were: ‘Blade Runner 2049‘ (2017), ‘The Matrix‘ (1999), ‘Alita: Battle Angel‘ (2019), ‘Ready Player One‘ (2018) and ‘Robot and Frank‘ (2012).


WEEK 6- ‘Blade Runner 2049’ (2017)

By Week 6, I felt like I had a better idea of what I was doing when it came to live-tweeting. I also definitely felt more comfortable blurting out my opinions than I did at the start of this subject.

For the ‘Blade Runner 2049’ screening, I…

BCM325 Peer Comments: A Reflection (Pt. 2)

ALINA HAGER

As a part of my studies in Future Cultures (BCM325) we are required to analyse and comment on our peers’ pitches for the major project. (You can see my own beta pitch here).

It was really cool to see how other people’s projects are coming along! The following three peer comments, summarise what their pitch was about, reveal what I commented and include my reflection on my own feedback.


PEER COMMENT #1 (Katie’s Project Beta)

THE FUTURE OF TRAVEL

For her Digital Artefact, Katie has been publishing blog posts on her WordPress website about different topics related to the future of travel.

My comment:

Reflection:

I think my feedback and critical analysis skills have improved since commenting on the Project Pitches. As seen in the comment, I have provided constructive criticism, engagement with their project and relevant (high quality) further research- which I briefly explain why I…

Project Beta- The Future of Marketing

ALINA HAGER

The beta content of my digital artefact (a blog series all about the future of marketing), is now up and operational. You can find it right here on my website under the ‘The Future of Marketing‘ tab.

As stated in my pitch, the focus for this Digital Artefact (DA) is to explore the future possibilities of marketing and advertising. Throughout 7 short-length blogs I plan to discuss and analyse some of the major trends and developing technologies that could potentially shape and/or disrupt the marketing industry.

Current audience engagement status: not great.

So far the first two posts I have published have received minimal to no engagement.

However, I suppose no feedback is still feedback…?

Based on the lack of response I’ve made a few changes to this project. In particular I’ve put more focus on the SEO of my website and posts. I’ve also decided to…

My Contribution to the Conversation- Reflecting on My Live Tweeting

ALINA HAGER

This blog post containing tweets and analysis is in regards to Live-tweeting exercises I have been participating in for the last 4 weeks for my Future Cultures class (BCM325).

The following tweets are a curation of some of my most significant contributions and interactions during the live tweeting of a weekly screening that explores the concept of the future. During the past 4 weeks, we have watched, ‘Metropolis‘ (1927), ‘2001: A Space Odyssey‘ (1968), ‘Westworld‘ (1973), and ‘Blade Runner‘ (1982) .


WEEK 1: ‘METROPOLIS’ (1927)

Unsurprisingly I found my first week of live-tweeting to be the most difficult. Having never done it before, I felt…

#BCM325 Peer Comments: A Reflection

ALINA HAGER

As a part of my studies in Future Cultures (BCM325) we are required to analyse and comment on our peers’ pitches for the major project. (You can see my own pitch here.)

This was an interesting task as giving feedback to other students is not something I am used to. However, I really enjoyed learning about the other project’s people have come up with and found the process of critically thinking about their projects interesting.

The following three peer comments, summarise what their pitch was about, reveal what I commented and include my reflection on my own feedback.

Peer Comment #1: (Emma’s Pitch)

THE FUTURE OF CHàE MEDIA

For this project Emma is planning to create a podcast series alongside the rest of the Chàe Media team. The focus of this podcast will be discussing: the future of Chàe Media, the BCM325 screenings, BCM325…

Project Pitch: The Future of Marketing!

ALINA HAGER


The following video explains the concept I am pitching for BCM325- The Future of Marketing (a blog series).


Methodology:

For my Digital Artefact (BCM325) I intend to create 7 mini blogs on WordPress (specifically, this site) as a part of mini-series all about the future of marketing. Marketing is my passion and is the industry I aspire to work in. Furthermore, I enjoy blogging and I believe this project will allow me to further my knowledge, as well as provide value to my audience.

Is it F.I.S.T?

  • FAST- After thoroughly researching the topic, creating the blog post should be a quick process.
  • INEXPENSIVE- The only costs are my time & effort!
  • SIMPLE- I’ll be sharing this mini blog series on WordPress with a specific target audience in mind.
  • TINY- Each blog will be fairly short and to the point (200-300 words), and will focus on one topic.

Production Timeline:
