Pecha Kucha A gathering of ideas where each presentation consists of 20 images (at the least 14 images) for 20 seconds apiece, for a total time of 6 minutes, 40 seconds, if you have all 20 slides or images.
Can't figure out how to pronounce it? Start here!The long of which can be found here. This is an excellent place to get everything you need and more. There's not only the history, but there's also:

And, in bullet form:
- The Pecha Kucha style comes from Japan; it means "chit chat".
- Pictures only, no bullet points...programmed to rotate 20 seconds per slide.
- Just because you have 20 slides doesn't mean you have to have 20 points...what are the five-ten essential things you want to say.
- In my case, because there are no bullet points the students listening get to decide what is essential.
- There's no one way to give a pecha kucha (hmmm...is that supposed to be capitalized?).
- Look at Youtube for examples...here, here or here...these are examples I like (Pecha Kuchas explaining Pecha Kucha *mind blown*).
I created my own version of the Pecha Kucha guidelines from the ones I originally found (calendar can be found here), eventually I will perfect this Pecha Kucha I made to present the idea to the students.
I can't wait to see the literary timeline results!
