Portfolio Item #5: 
Pecha Kucha Presentation on Learning


     Pecha Kucha is Japanese for chit-chat, and is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (O'Neill, 2023).

This quick storytelling format  uses pictures and voice to keep the presentation moving while the the speaker is concise in what they are presenting. This style gives a student an opportunity to reflect on their learning and present what they have learned throughout a course. I thought it would be very easy, activity.  After all, who cannot talk for twenty seconds? It was much more difficult than I had imagined, and a lot more informative. Although I am quite certain I missed a lot of important points in the course, I have highlighted a number of themes and activities that I felt were important to me as a Masters candidate.




     I plan to use much of my learning in my future classrooms (both virtual and in-class).  However, the Pecha Kucha presentation is something I already plan to implement in one of the business classes I am teaching. My plan is for students to create a Pecha Kucha presentation of their learning of the course concepts. It also allows them to use technology, which I think is an important aspect of my classroom. Although I will admit that usually presentation work, that I accept from my students, requires them to be thorough, I rather like Pecha Kucha style that shows what students learned over a course given the concepts that were taught.  The concept of not having text on the slide is quite foreign to me, but after doing the Pecha Kucha for EDUC5105, and watching all the students, I understand the flow and feel.  It is supposed to be something quite different than a regular PowerPoint presentation! I hope to find I will have an interesting mix of presentations that will then allow me to harvest data back to the students so they can take this forward as they move on to College or University.
