CIL2008: Pecha Kucha

Pecha Kucha means something like the sound of conversation in Japanese (according to Aaron Schmidt). This was a fast paced session with six presenters, who each had 6 minutes 40 seconds (and only 20 slides) to talk about a topic:
  • IM
  • Podcasting
  • Wikis
  • Vodcasting
  • Facebook
  • Rebuttal of the other five
  • Creating community
  • Creating content
  • Collaboration
  • Web 2.0
  • Communicating with users in ways that are appropriate for them
  • Easy
What was cool was how much information each was able to give in that short length of time. Each worked creatively to get their points across. We tend to think of presentations as being 20 - 60 minutes in length. What if we were all challenged to do a high quality presentation in 6 minutes?
