Learning Log 6.1: Design Research & Brainstroming
For our next assignment, this chapter seems very appropriate. I have yet to really strategize on how I am to go about doing my research for this project. This chapter was very useful. I learned some very useful facts such as focus groups are NOT reliable. It is vest to be camouflage when doing your research. The best way to really observe is to become your environment. I learned that when I had my Observing Humans class sophomore year. I had to take notes and watch my surroundings at the nearby Starbucks. It wasn't actually until i got comfortable and looked like a customer with my cup of coffee and laptop out that I had good concise research.
