1.Pecha Kucha (pe-chak-cha) is the Japanese word for the sound of conversation A Pecha Kucha presentation has slides that are on the screen for just 20 seconds. It highlights the main points of a topic. This type of presentation usually has only pictures with no words or minimal text. This helps the listener pay more attention to the speaker rather than reading words from the screen.
2. Images used need to convey the message of the presentation. This allows you to fly clearly through your presentation and not be entangled in what is on the screen. You can concentrate on your content and know that your slides will advance after 20 seconds without the need for your intervention.
3. Make sure that you get to the point of your talk, focus on facts and delivery, only what is important. Do not distract the audience with transitions and effects unless they add to the message you are trying to portray. Keep text on screen to 5 words or less. Try to use images only.
4.If you do this really well, you will avoid boring your classmates and your teachers. Enjoy the challenge of finding high quality images that match the ideas you want to portray. You will be projecting the images so the resolution should be clear. Remember to use Creative Commons images
5.How about you give it a spin, use advanced search in Flickr to identify CC licensed images. Remember to credit your sources on the last slide. Here’s the challenge 5 slides x 20 secs per slide? Can you do it? Let’s wow the other classes and your teachers.
6.Image credits : Get started, ask for help when you need it. I’m looking forward to seeing and hearing your presentations.
