BETA COMMENTS FOR BCM325

Belle's Blog

This week I was allowed to give feedback to my BCM325 peers for their Beta progress on their digital artifacts. Like the pitches, I commented on 3 entirely different blog posts. Their Beta videos and blog posts were all unique and Interesting, and it has been great to see their progress of the semester.

When proving feedback, I utilized the technique called:

‘A Complimenting Sandwich’

I found it to be very useful. It involves a 3 step procedure called Praise, Criticise, Praise.

Praise: This will ease the effect of criticism and feedback, whilst additionally providing positivity.
Criticize: This is where you can discuss problems and give critical feedback to the individual.
Praise: Support their work (add links or videos) and provide positivity once again.

BCM325 PROJECT BETA- My DA Progress

Belle's Blog

I have learned so much over the past couple of weeks whilst creating my digital artifact on the Future of Virtual Reality (VR). It has also been quite fun to read other individual’s responses on what their thoughts of the future of VR are too.

Engagement 

For my DA so far, I have demonstrated engaging with a public audience. Firstly I conducted a survey to my twitter followers, more specifically aiming my survey to my BCM325 cohort as I believe I would gain better a better engagement. From this, I received very detailed responses to what their thoughts are about the future of VR.

BCM325 Tweeting Highlights

Belle's Blog

The first 5 weeks of BCM325- Future Cultures, has entailed a weekly series of live-tweeting on films that are relevant to the future. Showcased through each film was a dystopian/ science fictional theme. The weekly live tweeting consisted of 10 tweets, as well as commenting and liking my cohorts tweets- ones that were relevant to the films and weekly topics. The films were different from what I would normally watch but broadened my thinking of films and how the future is perceived. 

The following blog will illustrate highlights of my weekly tweets, and demonstrate my participation in the weekly content. 

Week 1 entailed watching the 1927 silent film – Metropolis. My method of twitting for the first week was to use a ‘thread’, so my tweets would be neat, and easily accessible. However, to do this I had to delete and repost my tweets, allowing any of the likes I…

BCM325- Peer Feedback

Belle's Blog

For this post, I was assigned to provide feedback to three of my BCM325 peers on their digital artifact pitches. It was fascinating to see how people chose different outlooks on what our digital future will entail in the next 5-25 years.

For each comment, I provided I began by giving a compliment of their work and what I enjoyed most from their pitch. I would then provide feedback and any criticism and/or resources that they could then utilise and embed into their pitches. Lastly, I would provide one last positive comment and sign off.

I began with Julia. Julia has decided to create a DA focusing on the future of social media marketing and will show this through a three-part video series done over the coming weeks. The feedback that I have provided Julia I suggested she could reach out to an audience larger than just BCM, as her…
