Deindividuation and Conformity in the Classroom

Slightly different post to the usual today; this one is mainly going to be video! We were set the task of transforming our previous research (my last blog post) into a three minute video (I already failed on that one over four minutes – whoops!). Despite hating hearing my own voice I decided the easiest way to do it would be to record a narration. So here it is! Click the link to access the video. Hope you enjoy πŸ™‚
