This week’s class and activity was definitely something different but interesting all the same. We discussed redlining, which deals with different companies discriminating and denying services to people of certain geographical areas. I find that something to be very unfair because everyone should have access to the same types of services regardless of where they live. When doing my make bank based on transportation, I realized that the low income area I focused on how multiple ways for transportation and I believe it has to do with the fact that many people in low income areas don’t have cars and it is cheaper to take public transportation. Also even though it wasn’t an entertaining “game” by any means it does have some elements of gaming. For example when trying to find a service to compare with the redlining area we had to work with is an obstacle we had to overcome to get our end result which is the same as in a game. In a game you must overcome obstacles. The redlining activity also requires strategy just like in a game, which does show that this activity had elements of a game.
When it comes down to the audio project, I actually had a fun time creating this. I had posted my questions practically last minute and I was able to receive a response. But I only got a response to one question which was kind of odd that they didn’t respond to all three, but for the 2 questions I just responded and what I thought how they might respond. It was very fun listening to the whole thing come together and actually sounding like an in person interview! This link provides my audio that I created with my questions. It has been a long week but I am glad that I am all caught up and audio was fun, but I think I’m ready for something else lol!
