As part of our group project, we have decided after much deliberation we will choose Homelessness as our focus for our project. As discussed previously in this blog, we have been using the social media platform Facebook as our means of communication. We have found that it has been extremely helpful in keeping our group updated with ideas at any time of the day. We have been able to post links and ideas on the topic of homelessness and how it is something we all feel interests us. The angle we plan to take is to look at the similarities and differences between Ireland and America with regards to Homelessness as well as looking online in Second Life at virtual communities that deal with the issues surrounding Homelessness. Our group has worked well in finding a balance between ideas and choosing a topic that interests us all. At this stage of the development process each of our group members have contributed equally to the development of the idea process, and in the next stage of development we will assign roles/tasks each member will undertake in order to fulfil the needs of the project. Overall our online communication has worked exceedingly well and I hope it will continue to do so in the future.
