Reflections on Media Enhanced Learning: Pecha Kucha Presentation

 

I thought I would try out the Pecha Kucha presentation idea to summarize my reflections on what I learned in my Media Enhanced Learning PIDP 3240 course.

I learned that the Pecha Kucha format  ” . . . was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public” (www.pechakucha.org).  

Translating the format to cover concepts in education meant that I had to do a lot of searching on the internet for free to use and relevant  images.  Keeping the flow between the images and concepts while being mindful of the Pecha Kucha framework of 20 slides for 20 seconds each also made for an interesting challenge.

I hope that you enjoy the presentation.

I had lots of questions about learning and technology so I dropped in at Selkirk College in Nelson, B.C. and spoke to the coordinator of the Teaching and Learning Centre, Theresa Southam.

Theresa told me about a book, called Learning Medicine, An Evidenced-Based Guide by Drs. Wei and Chamessian, that her son, who is in med school, is reading to help him learn more effectively. A technology that the authors’ recommend is Anki.

For a summary of what I learned please listen to my podcast.  (5:16 minutes).
