Persuasion: Task 3 – 6 Frames for Thinking Workshop

Task 1

With teaching now being remote and online due to COVID – 19, we were set the task to try out the methods of the 6 frames of thinking. The six frames is a technique to help direct attention towards different aspects of thinking, looking at then individually rather than all at once.  Each frame respects a different aspect of information: Purpose, Accuracy, Bias, Interest, Relevance and Value. The first part of this task was to gather sources of information surrounding Covid – 19 and work through the six frames to analyse the findings.

I found this part of the task interesting as it was examining the world around us at the moment, what we are dealing with and looking at the amount of information out there. I looked at a variety of source (all of which are referenced below) from looking at all this information I felt that I was able to get a better understanding of the information and start thinking about the reliability factors.

This methodology of thinking about information used different shapes ‘frames’ to represent different things. The Triangle represents being clear what the information is saying to us.  The Circle was about the accuracy of the information, thinking about credibility. The Square represented looking at the point the view, considering bias and agendas.  The Heart  was concerned with the interest of the information, does it have an emotional effect of the viewer. The fifth frame, The Diamond, looks at the value of the information, considering judgment. The last frame, The Slab, looks at the overall out come, the summery of all these other frames. Below is the screen grabs of the word document with the work completed.

Task 2

For the second part of this task we were asked to use this method to look at information linked to our client brief. For this I decided to look at annual reports by dog shelters as these would give me some indication of how they raise engagement to get dogs adopted. I found that this was very useful again in helping me to process the information that was written within these reports. This information exercise has helped me to develop some thoughts and initial ideas for the project. Below are screen grabs of the work done on Microsoft Word.
