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… Continue reading The Finished Product: So What Next?
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… Continue reading MORE ENGAGEMENT AND MORE REFLECTION
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. https://twitter.com/tianap_/status/1126269202438868992 To improve from the last lot of live-tweeting I thought it was necessary to implement… Continue reading MORE MOVIES, MORE LIVE-TWEETS
In week 8, we were asked to write down 5 things that came to our minds within 5 minutes. Whether it was a game name, an idea, a theme, something we enjoy… anything!

Anyways, moving on from… Continue reading What Next?

Live-tweeting – what an experience. I have experienced live-tweeting before in one other subject, but not to the same extent as BCM325 Future Cultures. Over the last six weeks, we have been watching one sci-fi film per week and had to tweet about it while viewing. Trying to juggle watching a film (most of them… Continue reading I ANALYSE MY LIVE-TWEETING SKILLS
For the last few weeks in class, we have been playing and experimenting with a range of different games in order to determine what we like and don't like when playing when it comes to creating our own game. Last week we were given the challenge in class to create a prototype with some… Continue reading WE PROTOTYPED A GAME IN 2 HOURS
Over the past few weeks, we have had the opportunity to play and analyse a range of different games. Games of different genres, themes, difficulty levels, and mechanics, many of which I had never played or even heard of before this class. They weren’t your typical ‘break up a family’ type games like Monopoly, Cluedo… Continue reading PANDEMIC – What an experience that was!
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… Continue reading Digital Artefact Pitch
