The last meeting

So, on the 16th October we had our last meeting before the big presentation. We shared our last thoughts about the project, practiced presenting and discussed the possible feedback we might get.

See you tomorrow,

Charlotte, Christina, Joanne & Lina



Social media accounts

As our project aims to gather more data on the subject and to trigger further discussion, we thought that it would be really useful to integrate Instagram and Facebook accounts in our website. These accounts could help gather feedback data (i.e. #lensitapp). So we have created and started putting content on LensIt social media accounts.

P.S. We had some laughs updating the Instagram account, check it!


Defining the debate

Probably the most difficult part of the process. We have done a lot of content research and analysis of various authors and their theories. From all of the information we gathered it was challenging to make a clear and specific research question. After a lot of consideration and feedback we finally defined our project aim. The academic articles we decided to use for our project are mentioned below:

First meeting

On the 19th September our group Lina, Joanne, Christina and Charlotte had a first meeting. During the brainstorm we came up with a lot of ideas, we defined our interests and possible debates they relate to. So the big process was just ahead of us.
