Final Project: Reading Between the Lines

By Niko McGlashan

My partner and I decided to raise awareness on the importance of reading terms and conditions. The topic was closely related to on-line user security, which applies intensively to a high school audience. The video exclaims the importance of understanding contracts that pertain to the individuals’ concerns. The issue reflects how one can present themselves on-line and the necessary precautions needed to accurately present one’s self image on the web.

In collaboration with the class material, we used the film “Terms and Conditions May Apply,” and “Irrationally Bound: Terms of Use Licenses and the Breakdown of Consumer Rationality in the Market for Social Network Sites,” to succinctly express the importance of the matter. We also use a previous skit we created to depict the consequences of ignoring the terms and conditions.

We hope to deliver a professional and effective method of interpretation for a high-school audience by presenting the content in an immersive video. We hope that the viewers feel more pressured to inform themselves on the contract they are agreeing to, whether it is in the physical or digital world. Enjoy!
