Stage One

The modus operandi we have used for the assignment is to have weekly meetings.  At these meetings all of the concrete details are decided, then each person writes up their designated section of the document.

Throughout the process, I have provided research assistance to the group, including background research on the number of students in Queensland primary schools, research into educational apps and general usability research.  As a group, we have also looked at a number of existing apps with a similar model as that which we propose, i.e. a simple light hearted game with a serious underlying message.  Apps like “Dumb ways” shows how you can mix an educational message with engaging interactive game play, while “Crossy Road” shows how a simple gameplay concept can be made effective with small details.

My section was Introduction and Background. I have also edited the language of the document to ensure it reads well, and to ensure no loss of continuity between sections.
