  • I asked Jim Lawlor how he handled a course project?
  • Jim tried to assign a course project that required these three components.
  • “Just give me the handout.”Don’t put the text of my presentation on the slide!Cognitive dissonance results when students try to read the slide while trying to listen to the presenter.
  • . . . of information, directions, explanations, etc. At some point during just about every day of a classroom teacher’s life, they are “presenting.” Developing the presentation skills of prospective teachers is worth some time.
  • Two British expat architects living in Japan created Pecha Kucha in 2003 as a way to curtail the seemingly endless presentations their colleagues would make of their architectural work.
  • Pecha Kucha Night, devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham (Klein Dytham architecture), was conceived in 2003 as a place for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.But as we all know, give a mike to a designer (especially an architect) and you’ll be trapped for hours. The key to Pecha Kucha Night is its patented system for avoiding this fate. Each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds each – giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of fame before the next presenter is up. This keeps presentations concise, the interest level up, and gives more people the chance to show.Pecha Kucha (which is Japanese for the sound of conversation) has tapped into a demand for a forum in which creative work can be easily and informally shown, without having to rent a gallery or chat up a magazine editor. This is a† demand that seems to be global – as Pecha Kucha Night, without any pushing, has spread virally to over 200 cities across the world. Find a location and join the conversation.If you are interested in starting a Pecha Kucha Night in your city, please contact : pechakucha@klein-dytham.compecha-kucha.org
  • Presenters assemble no more than twenty slides shown for twenty seconds each for a total presentation time of six minutes and forty seconds. The presenter cannot speed up or slow down the pace of the slides during the presentation; each presentation is exactly 6 minutes and 40 seconds long. So if you’re stuck watching a dud, you’re only stuck for six minutes and forty seconds! Lives up to its Asian origins by demonstrating truly that “less can be more.”Pecha Kucha is a Japanese import like Karaoke, except the presenter is talking, not singing as 20 ppt slides that they previously submitted flash behind them on a screen for exactly 20 seconds each.
  • It’s become a bar event much like karaoke, but with speaking instead of singing.
  • Digital photos can be either yours or from a newspaper or only picture collectionContent slides can include the title, the names of your team members, “the end,” etc.
  • Bryce Ludwig sets his PowerPoint timer to 20 seconds per slide and then practices delivering his narrative.
  • Well, everyone except Bryce Ludwig, whose stomach lurches. A great act is tough to follow. And he’s up next, about to make a PowerPoint presentation about product design. He hasn’t spoken to a crowd since he ran for student council in junior high — and lost. Now 28, he skipped dinner, and as Vomit girl runs through her spiel, Ludwig is wondering, Why did I sign up for this?
  • 6:40 is a valid amount of time because it is an approximation of the average amount of time a TV program runs between commercials. Consider that Disney channel commercial runs are often 14 minutes. You get about 16-19 minutes of actual program per 30 minutes.
  • 6:40 is a valid amount of time because it is an approximation of the average amount of time a TV program runs between commercials. Consider that Disney channel commercial runs are often 14 minutes. You get about 16-19 minutes of actual program per 30 minutes.
  • You may or may not use a title slide.
  • If speaking/presenting in front of a group is a stumbling block for you, make it a stepping stone to accomplishing your communicative purpose (to inform, to convince, to teach) by thoroughly preparing and practicing your presentation. This alone is claimed to reduce your anxiety 75%.
