I decided to look at timetables because that was the only interesting thing I did on my phone. Really these days I rely more on laptops and computers. I didn’t really research the topic much and purely relied on my existing knowledge, but I did try to look for dates based on real release dates and be relatively realistic and accurate.

Originally things like the computer and tablets were going to be included or split flaps, but we don’t really use tablets as phones are actually more accessible and computers came after the pager so…

Looking back I could’ve tried to use other software to make it more readable, but I think for the classroom and this context it has worked out ok as the doodle style drawings and hand written nature adds a comical aspect that enhances the lack of details in the actual timeline.

Overall I think people have only learned to assert their understanding of current and past technologies and if anything was learnt it would be that there exists a thing known as the “pager”.

First: AMAZING aesthetics. From the font to the colour scheme it all works very well to create a friendly and eye catching poster.

Second: The text is varied in score. Some are short and concise. Where others appear at first glance to carry on and presumably people are a) inclined not to read that section and/or b) to just stop reading the poster.

Third: The pictures are nice as well, but could’ve been cropped to fit in more and maintain a consistent size, format, layout and aesthetic.

What did I learn? That we went from using approximations of position (guess work) to star mapping and charting/mapping the seas and eventually using advanced technology to accurately measure our location to mere meters.

7/10 Aesthetics: +Font, +Colour, +Layout, -Text size, -Image size

8/10 Information: +Informed, +Well structured, -Conciseness

Padlet based question: Complete this personality test-review, how accurate you find the results to be

16Personalities seems to be a widely used and accepted standard in main stream personality testing. I have taken the test before and it is interesting to see how my results have changed over the past 2 years.

The results this time were:

Personality Type: The Advocate (INFJ-T)

Individual traits:

  • Introverted – 69%
  • Intuitive – 62%
  • Feeling – 54%
  • Judging – 51%
  • Turbulent – 64%

Role: Diplomat

Strategy: Constant Improvement

It also described many things that I feel do reflect the way I think and feel at the present time. Decisions I have made and continue to make correlate very closely to the personality test result.
