Pecha Kucha Presentations

Learning more about Pecha Kucha…

The first minute of this video shares background information about Pecha Kucha presentations.  Then, it continues with an example to illustrate this specific presentation format.

Planning my presentation…

Last Wednesday, we celebrated our final ECMP class with pizza and Pecha Kucha presentations.   It was the first time I have created this type of presentation, so I had to learn about it before getting started.  For our class, @shareski decided on the presentation format to be either 10 slides timed for 20 seconds each or 20 slides timed for 10 seconds each.  I decided to create my presentation using 10 slides for 20 seconds each.

First, I created a PowerPoint with 10 blank slides and set the timer to change each slide after every 20 seconds.   Next,  I organized my thoughts  and ideas about what I wanted to say during my reflection of ECMP 455.  Then, I searched for pictures to illustrate my ideas.   I had majority of the pictures in my computer files, but I searched for a few more on Flickr.   Finally, I arranged the pictures in order and rehearsed what I was going to say for each picture during my presentation.

Taking it one step further…

After the ECMP class, I wanted to share my Pecha Kucha with everyone reading my blog.  I decided to try using Voice Thread.  I had never used it before, but I wanted to teach myself something new.  It was simple!  I signed up for account, uploaded my pictures, recorded my voice and I was done.  It was easy and very user friendly!  I will definitely use this tool in my classroom for various lessons to record my voice as well as the students’ voices.  It is a great way for students to share their learning and experiences with their peers.  Great self-evaluation and self-reflecting project! The only problem I found was it did not allow me to embed it in my WordPress blog.
