The first workshop i attended was the Images are ‘everywhere’ with Mark and Bronwyn, an off-site workshop viewed through a visual ethnographic ‘lens.’ We explored ways in which a designer might capture and make meaning of these lived experiences. I felt this could help in in regards to my research and interviewing the audience. I plan to make contact with local nurses at primary schools in the Wellington district. I am also looking to contact nurses that travel around are they might experience some of the worst cases in regards to the dental care of our children. I will also see if i can go an experience this and sit in on a few consultations. To be amongst the audience i am researching i might find some key insights.
The second workshop i attended was the Playful experiences with Tanya and Patricia. Within the experience i learned that i will need to engage my audience with asking them to participate in an experience. The workshop enabled me to examine the potential possibilities of meaningful experience generation, though motivationally playful engagement.
A possible path for me to lead down is the experience that a child experiences with they go to the dentist. I know when i was a child i was terrified to go, big machines, things being put into my mouth and bight lights in my eyes. Is there a way that i can make this more enjoyable for the user? If they enjoy the experience they may learn more about teeth and they effects of what they are consuming. This them will lead onto the children being able to teach the parents.
