Pecha Kucha as a Student Engagement Tool

This video is an example of a Pecha Kucha presentation – 20 timed images creatively supporting a topic being presented. A “classic” Pecha Kucha is 20 slides by 20 seconds each, for a total length of 6:40.  I’ve used the modified “Ignite Talk” format of 20 slides by 15 seconds each to stay within the 5 minute requirement.

I discovered first-hand that the simple format can be very deceptive: you need to know your topic, and you really need to practice to deliver a concise presentation in sync with the images! That being said, it’s a very simple, creative outlet … I might just check out a local PK night soon smile
