The digital artifact that I undertook for BCM325 Future Cultures was a podcast called What Next? and was a collaboration between myself and another student Lizzie Farley. The theme of our DA is conspiracy theories, we looked at particular theories and their link to the future made suggestions and predictions, and looked at what could have happened or will happen if particular technologies were around, or come into play in the future.
On our initial DA pitch post, we received very valuable feedback that we chose to implement into our podcast episodes. The feedback was very positive with a lot of people responding that they enjoy conspiracy theories and the idea of Lizzie and I collaborating on one project was a good one due to being able to divide our workload. Another common feedback response was that a podcast was an effective way to present our ideas. This is backed…

As the semester has gone on, I have come to appreciate the art of watching a film and live-tweeting at the same time. It is a skill that I never thought I needed but now value that I possess.
To improve from the last lot of live-tweeting I thought it was necessary to implement more links to information and reviews of the films being watched. I wanted to improve on this so that I could have a better understanding of the films and what was to happen in them, in turn having the ability to start a discussion more frequently.
For the last few weeks I did some…

Dignen (2014) describes feedback for many as something that is similar to criticism or attack, but explains that it is in fact the opposite to this – an act of support that intends to deal with underperformance in a constructive way, and to assist in developing a higher level of performance. The task of commenting on other student’s pitches and beta presentations is an effective way to give positive and negative feedback, and offer suggestions of how they are able to improve. The three beta videos I was tasked with commenting on were Naomi, Jessica and Abby.
Carrying on from my previous engagement with project pitches, I ended my post with what I thought I could improve on. The biggest one was overcoming a fear of being too critical, getting directly to the point and not fluffing around. I also wanted to improve by giving research evidence and material…

The Digital Artefact I am undertaking for BCM325 will be in collaboration with Lizzie Farley. Our project will be a podcast that runs on the theme of Conspiracy Theories. Over the course of the semester, we will be publishing 4 podcasts in total, each with a different conspiracy theory as the topic, and running around 20-30 minutes in length.
We chose this channel as neither of us has created a podcast before, and it is emerging as a popular medium at the present. It is also an easy way to keep our tone conversational and more of a discussion, as opposed to just reciting information. We have already made a list of a few topics to talk about, making sure that each has a link to the future, whether it is an ongoing trend/theory in the future or something with the potential to happen.
Before researching and recording our podcast…
