Filtering Good Information

Updated: Jul 25, 2022

David Mills: Session 01


In a sense, I am trying to 'educate' two sides on how to talk to each other. As the mediator in this dialogue, how do I filter out which information is correct and which information has contributed to this connection gap? I need to determine what is the expertise I bring into this dialogue design, and how to do I articulate what works and why it works. This will be combined with existing studies on the generation gap, the information or the guidance required for a person to exist in society with an awareness of self as well as ethics and morals.


As I write this I am aware that there needs to be a structure and a set of boundaries on what the key information that needs to be practiced in this project. A guide on the topics the two sides can talk about, what actions or phrases can and cannot be used, and a marker where they can stop to regain control if the conversation goes beyond the set guidelines.


The next interesting point was that I need to be aware the affect I have as an observer the moment I step into my stakeholder's world. I am not a mother, an elder sibling, nor Gen Z. I do belong to the teacher category from Gen Y, and that is where my 'insider' end. However, the moment I entered their world to ask questions, I am already affecting their mindset. Few things to consider:

How does anthropology fit into my project?

How does Gen Z communicate?

How do the other generations communicate?

Where should this information come from?


Also considering why do I see life the way I see life, and right now all I can think of is the influence Buffy The Vampire Slayer had on me. Perhaps another post on this.
