  • Beyond that P is
  • Visuals are for the audienceThe brain is wired to the ears by the auditory nerve – 30,ooo nerve fibers. The brain is connected to the eyes by the optic nerve – 1 million nerve fibers. Visuals are important to our brains.Learning styles are changing. More students today are visual learners, converting pictures to words.Limits one visual per slideUse high quality, good resolution picture.Ditch Design TemplatesGood Quality ImagesBan ClipartBring in video, give examples
  • Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It's a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.01. What is PechaKucha 20x20 ?PechaKucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images forward automatically and you talk along to the images. 02. Who invented the format ?The presentation format was devised by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Klein Dytham architecture. The first PechaKucha Night was held in Tokyo in their gallery, lounge, bar, club, creative kitchenSuperDeluxe in February 2003 Klein Dytham architecture still organize and support the global PechaKucha Night network and organisePechaKucha Night Tokyo. 03. Why invent this format ?Because architects talk too much! Give a microphone and some images to an architect - or most creative people for that matter - and they'll go on forever! Give powerpoint to anyone else and they have the same problem.
  • Takahashi uses only text in his slides. But not just any text — really big text. Huge text. Characters of impressive proportion which rarely number more than ten, usually fewer. Takahashi is a computer programmer who did not have software like PowerPoint (the slide above says "I don't have PowerPoint"). He says he did not have access to photos or drawing programs either. So he was stuck with text. Still, he wanted to be different. He wanted to be effective. So he started thinking very hard about how to use the best word for each slide as he took the audience through his presentation. The words or phrases resemble Japanese newspaper headlines rather than sentences which must be read. His slides, though they are all text, are visual, visual in the sense that (if you read Japanese) they are instantly understood and support his talk. As he says, if you have bullets or sentences, the audience will read those and may miss what you are saying.
  • Easy to read No more than 1 or 2 different fonts, in generalHelps to communicate the story or themeDon’t be afraid to use a large size – 40 or higherFor interest, place text at an angle.
  • Easy to read No more than 1 or 2 different fonts, in generalHelps to communicate the story or themeDon’t be afraid to use a large size – 40 or higherFor interest, place text at an angle.
  • Slides are cheap! Limit the amount of text on each slide.
  • No more than 5 information slides without an instruction/interaction slide prompting a paper-based or practical activity for the students. Discussion timer, activity, participation

  • One idea per slide Phrases not paragraphsBan bullets!
  • Limit use of animations and transitions – subtle is best!
