Phase 4: Preparing to Share: Emerging Ideas

Updated 1 week 1 day ago
In this Phase, I will be planning out how will I be sharing my learning for my final product. In the previous Phase, Phase 3, I collected all of my information and all of the information from local contacts.
 
To get more information on how this Final Product will work I looked at several people's Final Products. These people include Ivy F. (C), Miranda Y. (C) and Luca L. (K). I really liked how Ivy made a website that had all the information that people need when they come to Xizhou. I think that what she did was really great and very remarkable. Something that I really liked from Luca's video is that he did a really good job with the three hooks and the explanation of all of them. He also put photos of the village which was really nice to watch. What I really liked from Miranda's video is that she did a really nice job with putting all the steps and showing all the steps for making the Er Kuai. 
 
For my final product, I am going make it more of a guide to local snacks. I am going to make a video showing the different snacks and key information that you should know about Xizhou snacks. The main focus that I am going for is showing and giving people all the information that I found out during my stay here in Xizhou. I am going to try and inspire people to try these local foods and to make them try new things if they never came to this side of China. Something that I think will be good is having photos of me either making the snack or a photo of that snack. To fully understand what I will be stating in the video, here is my main point: In order to understand snack options in Xizhou, one might consider the available snacks, the target markets, and the times that snacks can be purchased.
