It’s now the start of the 3rd week of 4th year here in Dundee. It’s really felt like we’ve had to hit the ground running as we start our honors projects, these are the project that should define what it is we want to do and determine where our interests lay.
Having had just come back from summer with no ideas, I quickly had to find some sort of interest. For some reason I had though over summer that something would come to me or that I would be inspired, wrong I was and now I’m paying for it. But saying that, I’m happy with the topic that was my proposal for my dissertation – Dyslexia, usability of products and diagnosing.
Things to bring along:
Monday 19th – A journalistic article and a portrait of a role model
A role model –
Tuesday 20th – A Haiku
Monday 26th – “Photographs of people and context. Inspiring observations or quotations.”
I’ve been trying to get in contact with people experts that I can gain insights from, but talking to Andrew Cook, One of the guys doing the course, the way we should be going about it is by talking to people that are more impartial and that work with suffers from a day to day basis. But talking to Anne Gosling of the learning disability I was able to get some issues and maybe even some valuable insights.” Young school children suffering from Dyslexia aren’t being diagnosed early enough.”
I decided to print out some pictures of products that are used in school or that in some way related to learning. I decided to include something that has been growing on me, the Amazon Kindle. It not classed as an aid as far as I know but having used it, it has some really good features that allow the user to chance the font and lines of the text at the same time as using ink technology so it’s more like text on paper. I’m a fan of this sort of tech, There’s nothing worse than having to read a few chapters on a computer display, even the iPad with it’s high resolution doesn’t compare to to reading on a Kindle and it also doesn’t leave you with a headache.
