For the mask project I hope we will create a interactive and engaging maze that show everything that we have worked on. Also, hope to have a big come out on people showing up and having the feeling satisfied on all the hard work we put into this exhibition. Seeing how many people came to our exhibition and having them see how much work we put into this exhibition. When it comes down to the exhibition I would like the parents to be saying ‘Wow! These kids really put in a lot of effort into this exhibition’. If a sociology professor was there it would be nice of him/her to say ‘It very nice to see these freshmen learning on how they have been socialized’. When your users are able to learn what you are trying to teach them it gets them to see how their own parents have socialized them and how they have socialized their own kids. To make sure we have accurate information we need to double check our information with a trusted source so we are giving the right information to back us up in our presentation.
Things Get Real
Everything we know and believe has been formed by our interactions with other people. The problem is not everything we learn from society benefits us, or those in our community: Racism and Discrimination are all the negative behaviors that our society has learned. The past two weeks we have been discussing what we would like to do for our exhibition. We got into groups on what we want our families and the community to see at the exhibition. So we can get them interested to see what we have been doing here at Animas. The problems that we still need to address is a location for this maze and trying to figure out what jobs that will be assigned to each student for this exhibition. Over all if we fix all the issues this will be a really exciting exhibition because by doing this maze our parents and the community get to see what we have been doing at Animas and get to see how they have been socialized themselves. This will be very good for the little kids also having to go through a maze and seeing all the cool mask that the students have put a lot of effort into. If we do come up with jobs for this exhibition we need: Project Manager, Fundraising, Location Service/ Exhibition Crew, Construction, Design, Performance. If we do assign jobs i would either like to do the design or the exhibition crew . But, what we really need to work on is distributing jobs to everyone and finding a location to do this maze. The past two weeks working in groups I think that we put everyone’s ideas in coming up with a prototype for this exhibition. Working in groups will help move forward later when we get with new groups.
