The three student groups gave their presentations in this class and it was evident that all had given great thought to the content and serious effort to the production.

The students were divided into three groups with each one comprising Akron and DIT participants.

Class 9: Project work

April 11, 2014

SL class discussion_001CLASS SUMMARY:

The class commenced with a discussion arising from the reading material given last week. The effects of careless or thoughtless tweets posted by individuals who would have been expected to know better (for the most part) were reviewed. The ease of posting a tweet without thinking of the result and the subsequent impact on your career, family and friends was considered – along with the unwitting exposure of privately held views that may be unacceptable in society. The conversation also ranged into the area of privacy and how the appearance of openness may be simply an appearance – with consequent behavioural changes. In other words, people still require privacy – they simply guard it in different ways. The conventions around the use of social media continue to develop in line with these challenges. Social networks that prioritise privacy are now becoming popular and may well find that they can charge a premium for this value.

The second part of the class consisted of an update on progress in the group projects. All teams reported on the theme, communication between team members and development status. Good work on all fronts.

The students’ presentation of their projects at the Amphitheatre in Dublin Virtually Live was a real success. A good crowd (including a liberal scattering of pirates) came along and guest judges Elfay Pinkdot and Sitearm Madonna were in attendance.

Following the presentations students responded to questions from the judges and Locks Aichi and this was followed by a general discussion with member of the audience.

The event was a tremendous success from every point of view and particular credit is due to the participants for the significant efforts put into the event. Well done to you all and congratulations!
