Pecha Kucha style as a way to do your presentation

You are asked to create a theoretical based usecase of microblogging or blogging and publish your results online.

The next step will be to give a presentation of your results in the seminar. In order to avoid long and exhausting presentations I ask you to do your presentation using pecha kucha style.

Pecha Kucha („Éö„ÉÅ„É£„ÇØ„ÉÅ„É£?), usually pronounced in three syllables like “pe-chak-cha”) is a presentation format in which content can be easily, efficiently and informally shown, usually at a public event designed for that purpose. Under the format, a presenter shows 20 images for 20 seconds apiece, for a total time of 6 minutes, 40 seconds.1

So everyone should bring a slideshow with 20 slides with herself/himself to give a presentation of 6 minutes 40 seconds in total for our last seminar session on 14th of juli. Read more »

Microlearning

Last Semester I had a seminar about (e)Learning and some students created a film during the seminar. It is about microlearning and that is related to educational (micro)blogging as well.

Task

Videos in the seminar

Last week we watched this nice video about procrastination. There is a nother video I’d like to share with you but there was’nt enough time to do during the session so I’ll do it here and now.
May be it can help us to understand why it is difficult to adopt twitter and blogs in education as well (see here and here), as these tools are still prette new, but dont take it tooo serious.

Engage the students


It is said that using new and fancy tools helps to attract the students and gets them to work more engaged in the class. Do you think engaging students could be enough as a reason to use twitter blogs, wikis and other stuff in school? How about students who would prefer the “traditional” way of classes?
