Genna and I talked with Gina this afternoon about the direction of our project. Since Genna and I are taking a different approach this semester than the other groups in class, by actively working on an activist project, we were having trouble seeing our project in a “bigger picture” sort of way. I made a post earlier with some links to similar projects to ours, but as we were doing more research we realized that we just weren’t finding any campaigns that were really trying to do what we are doing. Gina helped us contextualize our project and drew out the bigger theme of Media Access and the Digital Divide.
Genna and I will be presenting this theme and connecting it to our activism for you all on Wednesday, but I thought maybe I would give you a little preview into the main media object that we will be analyzing.
So if you are interested take a look at the StoryMaker App !
