Today was a very useful class, we were able to split off into our groups for project brief 4 and begin working together. Alaine, Jess and I plan to create a multimedia platform on institutions. In class we used a mind map to brainstorm ideas for our project, with our main focus being on the contrast between traditional media e.g. newspapers, and modern day media outlets e.g. social media such as twitter. There’s an interesting differentiation between bias vs freedom with media texts, and we want to explore that further in our project. We created our collaborative contract and organised our availabilities so we can work together outside of class as well. So far I’d say we are on track for project brief 4, and as long as we continue to communicate and contribute we should complete the task no problems.
