Sockology: Angelika's Story
In collaboration with Angelika DaSilva, the founder and CEO of Sockology, as well as Mount Royal University's Broadcasting program, I had the opportunity to direct and produce an instructional video about the importance of compression socks to avoid the risk of pulmonary embolisms and blood clots.
To empower seniors with an authentic story who may be discouraged from wearing compression socks and understanding blood clots.
Social Development Theory
The theorist I based my video's concept on was Lev Vygotsky’s Social Development Theory. The Social Development Theory establishes the idea that learners are able to learn from a more knowledgeable other, also known as an “M.K.O.”, about a topic or subject.
According to Vygotsky’s theory, learners are taught from an instructor/teacher, and then they are able to interact with one another, as well as learn on their own. The aspect of social interaction for learners is fundamental to the theory, in that Vygotsky believes that learners have two separate types of development: socially or inter-psychological, as well as individually or intra-psychological.
