Katie's Blog

Pitch: Beta:

Table of contents:

I will discuss my process of this semesters digital artefact; idea, method, utility, iterations, what I learnt and relative lecture content.


My project consisted of a series of short blog posts on WordPress, accompanied with short TikTok explainer videos. I decided to do the subject of travel around the idea of future transport and circumstances as travel is one of my passions and see a career involving travel in my future. The recent global pandemic has changed freedom of travel with restrictions and adaptations which interest me to explore and what reality we are in today. WordPress is a digital platform to convey engaging informational ideas with words and visuals and Tiktok as a rising popular short video social media reaching millions of users for awareness. My inspiration came from social media travel vloggers such as ‘Lexie Limitless’ experiences virtual reality travel…

Part 2. Tweeting Away

Katie's Blog

My content – Just like weeks 1-6 I found it difficult to find valid content relevant to the subject in a short amount of time. This time I wasn’t as hesitant with what I posted where as I thought a lot about what content/words I was saying and what people would think. Posting the obvious ideas/trends that our audience is familiar with puts it out online for interaction knowing I’m not the only one. Visuals or added references/sources highlight attention and help understand what is trying to be conveyed. Some screenings were more knowledgeable to me and different to others due to personal experiences. I found I analysis movies differently now as well as past English lessons from camera angles and representations, now making more connections to message of future cultures. As the screenings were from the 20th century to the past decade I can see different perspectives of futurist…

Part 2. BETA feedback reflection

Katie's Blog

*I chose the 3 people below my names because they weren’t up in time.

Comment 1. Future of AI

Alex’s project is very interesting and relevant consisting of short blog post and Tiktok videos of AI advances. It is obvious short videos with visuals is informational and engaging to convey the message and is a great media to use on social platforms. Biologists have been creating realistic robots ‘In a way, the Xenobots are constructed much like a traditional robot, only we use cells and tissues rather than artificial components to build the shape and create predictable behaviour’ (Tufts University 2021). What will be the role of humans at a time when computers and robots could perform as well or better and cheaper, practically all tasks that humans do at present’ (Makridakas, 2017 (wk11) what are the implications? This article (Ashley stahl 2021) explains how our work life will…

BETA BCM325 – The Future of Travel

Katie's Blog

I found it hard looking for a pathway with this concept, not much interest and time management the plan changed a bit. I believe I’m still scattered on what direction to take as there are lots of possibilities. I see travelling as part of my career and I’m intrigued about the future environment of our planet.

I am focusing my DA on future travel, what’s changed or new innovations. Since the pitch, I have posted on WordPress and TikTok as I thought they were efficient for my content but not much interaction has succeeded. There is plenty of competition of this topic in the media so to be unique is rare, Tiktok has the potential for exposure and feedback.

One of my Tiktoks reached 600 views and 7 likes but not an average and only few likes on my blog posts, this may be the case from inconsistent posting or…

Bcm325 – Part 2. Tweeting Summary

Katie's Blog

Posts (10). Account –

The four movie screenings were a new experience looking into the past creations of future perception. I found it a bit hard to tweet about Sci fi type films as I’m not interested or educated on them. My intention was to be consistent and post relative thoughts and references. I criticise the films directive technique such as soundtrack and camera angles as well as visual representation of the future environment. What do these futuristic films indicate? I’ve learnt that today, a past future, was predicted somewhat correct, but can’t comprehend in the last century how we could be so knowledgeable to predict such a technological or utopian world, which makes me think these films must represent a dream or hope for future. Some screenings were more enjoyable and understandable for me but I have learnt they have a similar representation of THE future world that…

BCM325 – Peer Reflection!

Katie's Blog

COMMENTS: (2 of my assigned people didn’t have links up in time so I picked the 2 above them)

Elissa Rhodes – Future of sporting

Elissa is creating a research project of Sports media on Youtube involving the history of the Olympic Games. Short videos holds viewers attention from visual with this purpose of being educational. Recently I have learnt analytics is important for knowledge of strategies and audience behaviour to access direction to go project content, also applying to reflect on online companies, how they present sport events. I’ve seen sporting podcasts are popular today reviewing or updates on live games. Sports is becoming more evident on social media not just TV with campaigns, betting and competitions held at entertainment venues allowing for powerful engagement.

Environmental conversation is all over the internet and I believe more people should be passionate about it…

Bcm325: The Pitch

Katie's Blog



  • What it looks like post Covid? There are concerns of how the economy will look, there is a reality of an ‘on/off’ economy.

  • Guide on where to go and what to do – the experience now is more important than the destination.

  • Being environmentally friendly – futuristic money, futuristic cars

  • Virtual Travel… how?

Can you imagine going anywhere, anytime with friends and family but not physical travelling; no emissions, no crowded places, not just a live streams. Already they are saying international travel may be allowed at the end of the year considering the Covid vaccine goes ahead. What does this mean for the tourism industry? A new opportunity, a new experience.

I have never thought deeply about the Future, maybe I don’t want to put a timeline on anything as they could change anytime, as we’ve seen in the past year. Of course I have goals…
