The Pecha Kucha Toolkit


Published on

Pecha Kucha presentations burst onto the scene in 2003 and have since been adopted and adapted by a wide audience, from the creative industries to the business world and of course, education. Having observed the use of Pecha Kucha in a number of different educational contexts, this practical session examines why the format continues to have relevance for us, and what role it can play in different learning and teaching environments.

This presentation shares a basic Pecha Kucha 'toolkit', structures to explore with your students and teachers, and some ideas you can try tomorrow in your class spaces and staff development.
