Pecha Kucha is a new global presentation phenomenon, which originated in Japan sometime during 2003.
It’s a new and wonderfully creative and unconventional way to do Power Point presentations. The rules are very simple: You must use 20 slides, each shown for 20 seconds, as you tell your story in sync with the visuals.
When you’re done – you’re done.
PLP’s 1st Pecha Kucha night is this Wednesday at 7pm EST (6CT) (5MT). It will last less than 1 hour.

I’m most interested in the speaker in the top left. 😉
Should be a wonderful event.
Since I have had to sit through countless painful student power points (and some painful professional power points), my first response to this was positive. I still think there is a place for this model; however, on further reflection I had to ask whether this isn’t just another way for someone to lecture to passive listeners? No time is allowed for questions, clarification, elaboration, interaction, collaboration, challenging. How do we assess listener/student learning? They are still just being “talked at.” I am curious to know more about it, but can only “attend” if my evening class is cancelled for snow.
Sounds very intriguing….I will stop by and thanks for the invite. Just lurk and see what’s it all about.
You raise an interesting point! However, the organization of content is more like a poetry slam night (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poetry_slam)than a serious act in co-construction of knowledge.
Stop by, whether you decide or not to use this technique to learn or to teach– I think you will find it fun and entertaining. And you just might learn a thing or two as well.
But thanks for raising a valid point.
