Learning Blog – Profile Interviews

Learning Blog – Profile Interviews

The profile VT that my group decided to film this week was about a student photographer who uses her art to fund her studies. As our target audience were UK university students, we thought that this particular profile could turn out to be extremely helpful to them as many students are having to turn to alternative methods to pay for their student lifestyle.   My group and I beg...

Learning Blog – Brexit VT

The VT that my group decided to create was about Brexit and the publics thoughts and reservations around the topic. We decided to cover it at that particular time, as the countdown for the final 30 days before Britain leaves the EU had begun making it a harsh reality that it will soon be happening.   From the start, we pretty much realised that gathering peoples’ thoughts ...

Part One – Decision Making March 10th 2019 The data set I have chosen to focus on is the rate of Teenage Pregnancy across England and Wales.

On looking at different datasets for my final infographic assessment piece, I have decided to study the numbers of children that are being adopted in the London Borough of Brent.   I chose these particular datasets as I wanted to look at the number of children waiting to be adopted vs the number of children that are actually being adopted.

The angle I’d like to take for this story is “why more and more Afghan civilians are being killed each year”. ...
