How to use Pecha Kucha in your face to face or online courses

Pecha Kucha : “PechaKucha 20×20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images.” http://www.pechakucha.org/faq

The time used is about 7 minutes for the presentation. Thoughts I had for this format, was tuse the tools as a review of the lecture of module in the course.

At the end of the class, or module, you can have the students review a pecha kucha, in which the images are the images used in the lecture or module of the day. its a way to generate the ideas of the student, and allow the student to recall the content in a very quick format.  How much of the information they retained will be good to measure, and can help to identify gaps in teaching.…

My thoughts of this was a simple: While i enjoy the thought of using the pecha kucha, I think that may be a bitt too long for a,”rapid review.”

I noticed Powerpoint has a feature that advances the slides automatically, I thought that I would create a slideshow presentation that was 10 slides in length,  and allows for a group of students to present the materials at the end of the class.

This end of class activity willl be called: “Rapid Review”

Will see how this allows students to retain the material, and how they work with the review or the images.  This also allows me to understnd and identify gaps in the content, that can used to help improve the course, content and concepts being used in the course.

Thanks,
