What I'm doing for the final...

Post  OliviaPeterkin on Wed Dec 05, 2012 3:17 am

I'm going to base my prezi off of the paper that combined what literacy means to me, and my own personal literacy story. Because it has to do with Hawaiian Creole Pidgin and language barriers, I thought it would be cool to include two videos in this presentation. The first would be a clip from well-known YouTube celebrity NigaHiga who is also from Hawaii and has a clip on Pidgin speaking. the second video I wish to include is one of my own creation, because my paper is focused on language barriers, I'm interviewing my friends Yei-jing, Joel, and Robert about what literacy means to them and ask them to expand on it.

I'll ask all of them to speak their native languages in the video and put subtitles in. Yei-jing is a MBA student from China, Joel is a journalism major from the Ivory coast (a west-African french speaking country), and Robert is a Music major with a minor in spanish from California by way of Mexico. All of them are Mizzou students and I think that it would be a cool twist to have them voice their thoughts in different languages. I also plan on using quotes from the book "Sista Tongue" by Lisa Linn Kanae, a book that I had to read for my creative writing class on Pidgin speakers. Of course, lines from my essay and pictures that I have of home and comparisons of lifestyles will be included.

That's what I have rendeer

Remember how he said that Prezis are more for presenting information and teaching somebody something, not so much a story! SOmething to think about.

Thanks for the reminder, but there's really no other way for me to present the information I want to-in the way that I want it to look. Combining videos and quotes and pictures etc, is more difficult to present in a way that's aesthetically pleasing without prezi.

I think that will work just fine to use a prezi, you would have to rely more on what you were planning to say and use the pictures etc. to supplement your spoken presenting. I think this will be very interesting as well.

I think the use of people and their different languages would be really cool. It will add a lot of culture to your project and make it very interesting! This is a GREAT idea and I think it will add a lot to your final project. Great ideas!

It might be really cool if you did some interviews and put those interviews on the prezi to help show that this is a real thing and you can prove it.

I agree with Adam again. The interviews I believe will do wonders for your final. It will add a lot that will make this presentation more "real" to people. It will almost make it more relatable seeing these average people involved in the project and it will give the project more of a face.

Something I have found with journalism that I feel like works in this context as well is the idea of connecting to your audience and this is exactly what you ill be doing with these interviews. It shows the audience that this is a real thing and they will be able to connect and not only get more out of it but also agree with your statements more often than not.

Another great point by Adam. If your can make your viewer believe the people they are watching are much like them, you will be a lot better off convincing them to see your argument. Much like Obama did in the election. He attempted to convince people that financially he was more like us, the "blue collar" workers than Romney.

Thank you for the advice, input, and encouragement. I was planning on putting the video in my prezi simply because it was a look into how people who are not natives of America thought. I like that it makes it more relatable though!

I like their ideas for the interviews and i know you are passionate about his because you lived in Hawaii and enjoyed it there. I think just how much people will be able to see how much you love and miss it will do wonders for it as well.
