Week 5: Communicating Ideas

Although I would consider communication one of my strengths I have found myself struggling with how to communicate and effectively explain ideas and concepts that are incomplete and beyond my skill set.

Paul has helped us with this idea and really it comes back to the old rhyme, ‘how do you eat and elephant? one bite at a time’. I now understand that its ok to not have my ideas set in stone and realisation before presenting them. In fact sometimes the only way we can actually make and construct or make plans is when we share them and we involve other people and their expertise.

So in trying to communicate our ambitious project concept I have broken it down into ‘bite’ sizes in the way of story boarding.

The images below are draft plans of a slide presentation of our project concept to be presented on the 1st of September. Our group has chosen to collaborate via google docs (this can be seen here: http://bit.ly/2bvtbFh )

After making this story board I then decided to film the interactive website the block as a visual illustration of our inspiration. I time lapsed it and the video will be embedded to our presentation but is also shown here:

I found these images to add to our collaborate slides and am pleased with the progress so far Screen Shot 2016-08-29 at 3.33.53 PMScreen Shot 2016-08-29 at 3.34.03 PM

I found it very helpful and a release of stress to be able to learn how to visually communicate my ideas so people can better comprehend them and also get involved themselves.

It is imperative for our project group to communicate our plans as our concept is beyond our current skill set, however, we believe our kiosk could be a great asset and attraction to the Kroad business association.
