Pecha Kucha

Posted by & filed under Circles, Ideas.

Looking for an engaging way to have your students give a presentation. Have you seen Pecha Kucha? This is a presentation format started by two architects Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham. It is 20 slides each set at 20 seconds for a total of 6 minutes and 40 seconds of presentation. No stopping, no digressing because the show moves on. If you don’t have 6:40, why not CASE, adapt and adopt. For example, have your students give you a Mini Pecha Kucha. They could do 6 slides (1 intro, 4 content, 1 conclusion), 10 seconds per slide for a 60 second teach back of anything you have taught them or asked them to research? Want to step that up another level, have them screencast the Mini Pecha Kucha and share it via Youtube using screencastify.  BTW, CASE stands for Copy and Steal Everything and believe it or not, it was the original name of Circles of Innovation. Rob Mccaffrey and I used to hold CASE lunches before Circles was created a few years ago. Anyways, our experience has shown us that for some reason, teachers just love petty larceny when it comes to teaching ideas 🙂  Therefore, here is a video to help bring you up to speed.
