Pecha Kucha - 20 images x 20 seconds

Pecha Kucha is a Japanese presentation technique developed in 2003 by young designers from Tokyo. Their goal was to make their presentations interesting and engaged, yet brief and concise. The phenomenon has spread like wildfire and is available in hundreds of cities around the world - including Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö and Kalmar.    

The idea is that each speaker may show exactly 20 images, each shown for exactly 20 seconds. The entire presentation takes 6 minutes and 40 seconds, ie 400 seconds.

Pecha Kucha means " the sound of conversation" (chit-chat) in Japanese.

Let your students make their own Pecha Kucha on any topic or on a topic you choose. They could use Prezi/Keynote//PowerPoint with the timing of 20 seconds per image. N.B. Google Presentation does not work at the moment, since time cannot be set to 20 seconds. 

If you want to know more about Pecha Kucha and watch inspiring examples you can visit the official website: http://www.pecha-kucha.org or look on youtube for examples. Here are some FAQs with answers: http://www.pechakucha.org/faq 

I have used this presentation form sucessfully with both adults and young adults, evaluations show that students appreciate the form and the presentations are said to be more interesting to listen to. 

I can definitely recommend you to try this with your students - just remember it should be about the fun of learning things from each other. 

If anyone would like to do a "get together" with my students  - sharing pecha kuchas  - let me know! 

Sharing is Caring!
