Looking back I’m pleased with the presentation and how it ran on the day. I think we brought all the research we had done together. In examining the use of digital technologies worldwide this allowed us to comment on how it helps or hinders different countries freedom of the press. We could also compare this to press freedom in the UK. It was a challenge to give each place and each point a time slot, as there was just so much to say. If we were to do it again we could look into this and maybe find a more effective way of portraying the each countries press freedom.
Anna did incredibly well bringing everything together on the powerpoint and I think the link to Adrian via Skype was the right way to get our point across in how digital technologies are used. We could have maybe used other interactive technologies to give the presentation a more multimedia feel.
I was happy with Matt Fleming’s interview and that we could hear from a professional firsthand about freedom of the press in the UK. I hope by using a snippet in the presentation this enticed the audience to our blog afterwards to view the longer cuts of his interview. He raised some interesting points about Twitter and libel laws, and also commented on press freedom in Dubai, which I have since looked into to find out more.
The question and answer session after the presentation was very interesting and we were asked some thought provoking questions which gave us a great opportunity to bring in other information we didn’t have chance to cover in the presentation.
I think there are still massive amounts we could research but I hope we covered the most important points to answer the question for all of you.
I’d love to know what you think…
