This is the data drawing I produced for week 3, visualising the timing of my activities within the Critical Data in Education (CDE) course, in the context of work and other commitments. The data were collected using multiple ways: Google Chrome history, Twitter history, Signal app history and by recall. The drawing paints a picture of how I fit the activities of CDE on top of my existing commitments (hence the placement of CDE activities on the top of the timelines) and significant transitions in my life (starting a new relationship!).
This drawing provides a broad overview on my overall well-being. It seems to show that I managed some balance between my work, study, relationship and family. It may suggest I am doing okay in terms of social wellbeing (e.g. staying in touch with family/friends, spending substantial amount of time communicating with my new girlfriend).
I felt this type of data collection exercise (i.e. time tracking) would be a good exercise for students’ wellbeing, providing students not only the information on how much time they have spent on studying, but also whether they have spent decent amount of time to maintain their social wellbeing.
