TED Talk: How Better Tech protects from distractions

This Is Your Social Life on ‘Pokémon Go’

Blog task this week: Find a friend or family member and co-design a short task that will examine their attention capacity, relative to yours. ★ Write up what you learned, including links to some research. ★ Remember to ask about their experience of the test, and check how they would like to be represented in your blog.

#BCM332: On and Behind the Screen: Why Representation Matters

Home-movieTutorials:

  • Tips on Peer teaching
  • Time to work shop your case studies
  • Time to spend with Peer Teaching groups
  • REMINDER
  • First 500 part of case study due in Moodle this WED 9/8/17, 5pm (upload link to your blog).
  • You will not receive a grade until the final submission on 6/9/17 – but I will provide feedback for you to revise.

 

ACTIVITY – REPRESENTATION.

As I mentioned in the lecture, this week, Netflix has started the #FirsttimeIsawMe hashtag as a way to promote their series Dear White People.

Watch this.

WATCH:

Christopher Bell TED talk on female superhero merchandise.

What are your thoughts on this in relation to representation?

Do you think there is a responsibility of companies to represent characters equally?

TIPS ON PEER TEACHING

The main things I would suggest

  • a variety of activities
  • things you can do in small groups – and hopefully have students talk to one another – try to make it interactive.
  • As you will see in the outline, feel free to bring handouts, show the class any visual material and have them discuss. At the end of each tutorial, come and see me if you need any handouts printed etc, and I can do this for you before class.
  • LOOK AT THE COURSE OUTLINE – lots of resources with ideas! Here are a few more:
