Week 5

Catch Up week!
(And a data collection exercise.)

Catch Up week!


If you are on track, carry on with data collection, and read the guidelines in the document in which Laurens explains what kind of tools you can use to analyse your data.

You can collect data in your environment about any topic. What’s important when collecting data is that you set a couple of rules you follow while collecting. This week’s exercise is to collect data on COVID instructions and signs in your environment.

Exercise instruction:
Look in your neighbourhood for instructions or signs on how to behave during the COVID 19 Pandemic.
Collect 10 different signs / instructions you can find in public space, this can be in a shop, on the street, etc.. It can be an instruction to wear a face mask or a sign to enter a shop with maximum of 2 people or a signs to remind you to wash your hands.

Collect this information / data:
-A picture of the sign / instruction
-The text that’s on it in the original language and English translation
-Material: is the sign handwritten or printed? In color or black and white?
-Location: where did you find the sign / instruction?
-Type location: what type of location is this (a shop, a bus stop, etc…)

Collect your data in one document (Word document, hand-written, Google docs) and post the document in Slack.

Good luck and have fun collecting!
