As part of the BCM325 subject, students are challenged with the task of engaging in live-tweeting sessions during weekly screenings of various sci-fi films.

The second half of the #BCM325 live-tweeting experience was quite different to the first. During my initial post about live-tweeting, I explained the challenges I encountered throughout the first five screenings – these included difficulties with Twitter word limits, scheduling Tweets, garnering engagement with my posts and paying attention to the film while still actively engaging in the live discussion and commentary. This post intends to discuss how I countered these challenges (in both the written and audio segment), noteworthy class engagements during live-tweeting for week’s six to ten of this semester and how my overall live-tweeting experience has engaged in thinking about the future and the representation of the future and its reality.

For my BCM325 Digital Artifact, I intend to produce a business plan that will span across a three-part blog series. The plan will address the short-term future of my brand – Let’s Talk About ADHD – and personal career.

A ‘mixed’ BCM325 live-tweeting experience.

Amelia Phelps Journalism

As part of the BCM325 subject, students are challenged with the task of engaging in live-tweeting sessions during weekly screenings of various sci-fi films.

As this is the first BCM subject that I’ve studied since my first year of university, I felt a little under-prepared for the task of live-tweeting. The experience so far has been an interesting, albeit humbling, one I admit. 

While this post intends to highlight the best of tweets and interactions resulting from the live-tweeting sessions I’ve engaged in so far, I believe it important to first take a brief look at some of the poorer quality tweets I’ve produced, to see the improvement and progression I’ve made so far across this semester.

The good, the bad and the ugly – peer feedback, BCM325.

Amelia Phelps Journalism

As part of the BCM325 subject, students are challenged with the task of commenting on other peer’s Digital Artefact pitches to generate feedback loops which provide valuable insight and constructive criticism. This process is of mutual benefit to both parties involved as the commentary seeks to stipulate reflection and consideration of the commenter’s DA too.

Comment 1:Tegan has created a Bookstragram account and intends to explore the future expansion of her account and business within her DA.

 

Summary:Within my comment, I noted my excitement for Tegan’s concept, the highly interactive nature of the feedback loops generated by the bookstagram community, the benefits of utilising more specific hashtags and an example of one that she may like to use, how Tegan’s DA may benefit from a more defined future focus and the importance of considering the past in order to predict the future.
