Pecha Kucha Presentations

Presentations can be given effectively in many different variations.   There are methods that have been created to ensure time efficiency and a cohesive structure throughout a presentation.  Pecha Kucha is a program that is structured to give presenters twenty slides that allow them to speak more in depth about each slide for twenty seconds for a total presentation of six minutes and forty seconds.

I am unfamiliar with the logistics of the program because I have never used it before, but I am excited to start within the next month.  This is a great way to keep the speaker’s main points regarding the slide concise.   Some speakers can explain their presentations for longer periods of time than necessary, so by automatically changing slides set on a timer, it keeps the speech moving effortlessly.  I am looking forward to learning new methods of giving speeches, and this looks like a great way to do so.

Here is a link that gives tips and tricks to effectively utilize the program:  https://catherinecronin.wordpress.com/2012/06/13/pecha-kucha/

  1. Thanks for sharing this. I have never heard of this program and I am glad you brought it up because I think it will be useful for me in some of my classes as I progress in my career.

  2. This is a foreign concept to me and I’m not wrapping my head around it easily. Is this what was used for Bruns’ presentation? His spewing on about producers and consumers that no one seemed to understand? Part of me did not care what he had to say in the end because he could not say it effectively because he flew through it. I felt that I could have learned so much more if I understood more and the only way for that to happen was for him to slow down.

    Is this the method we are supposed to use for our presentations?

    1. I believe so! I am nervous about beginning to work with this type of medium because I am so unfamiliar with new programs, and I am not sure how involved the rest of my group members will be in helping figure the program out. I guess only time will tell!
