Voice over for stats


1 Twilight books inspired on Pride and Prejudice- Knew: 2 vs. Didn’t know: 14

When quizzed if people knew the highly popular Twilight series were inspired by a classic novel, Pride and Prejudice, from the total interviewed, only 2 knew.


2 Austen: 5 vs. Meyer: 7

From the people interviewed, the modern day writer Stephanie Meyer was preferable over classic author Jane Austen.

3 Shakespeare: 11 vs. Rowling: 7

In contrast, when asked who was preferable between Shakespeare and J.K. Rowling, the classical writer of Romeo and Juliet came out on top.

4 Elizabeth Bennett – Knew: 4 vs. Didn’t know: 12

It is interesting to find Pride and Prejudice is such a well known classic yet when asked only 30% of people actually knew who the protagonist was.

5 Hermione Granger – Knew: 15 vs. Didn’t know: 1

On the other hand, it’s no surprise all but one knew who the modern character Hermione Granger was.


6 Consider Film a form of Literature – Yes: 11 vs. No: 3

It is interesting to note that most people consider film a form of literature, when technically speaking the definition of literature is written works.

7 Book: 11 vs. Film: 7

From the consensus, reading a book is slightly favourable over watching a film. Some mention there is more detail in the books, which is why they enjoy it more.

8 Screen: 1 vs. Book: 15

When asked which they preferred to read on, there is no contest. The stats show the physical book is still clearly favoured over modern technology.

Augmented Reality

(Updated) I decided to use my sisters mac computer and re did the video because it s much clearer quality. I can show you guys on Monday when we meet up. 🙂

So after 8 frustrating hours I FINALLY figured out how to google earth and screen capture. Like seriously I wanted to throw my computer against the wall. Whew.

Okay so here is just a draft of the augmented reality. I just did a tour with pin points to the main places of interest we interviewed.  Let me know what you think and if i need to change anything. Its still a little choppy and blurred in places so this is just a tester.


First slide Definition

Literature; [Lit-er-uh-cher] noun

Writings in which expression and form, in connection with ideas of permanent and universal interest, are characteristic or essential features, as poetry, novels, history, biography, and essays.” –

Literature, in its broadest sense, is any written work; [typed onto screen]


Another take on how to define classic literature.

We might define classic literature as works that endure over time, that appeal to readers of all ages, backgrounds, and levels of education, and that bridge categories – Susan R. Bobby
