Pecha Kucha Powers On – Part #4

This post is little behind schedule but later on today my class will be giving their PechaKucha presentations. Our final lesson of preparation began with a feeling of lethargy and blank looks.

So we went back to why are we doing this?

We needed to refocus, reflect and recharge.


Learning and Linking at the #1to1unconf

On my way to the 1:1 Learning Unconference

It is going to be an amazing couple of days with unbelievable opportunities to:

  • Connect with others on so many levels
  • Conceptualise new ways of thinking and implementing
  • Collaborate and create new directions for learning

Reflecting or Redirecting Reality

For many, television supplies a blissful escape from reality. It offers us the opportunity to sit back, relax and take the opportunity to engage with someone else’s dilemmas, discoveries, disasters and dreams. But has the divide between pure entertainment and real life begun to blur with reality TV shows?


School + Twitter + Facebook + YouTube = Positive Online Presence

School promotion is on the agenda for our Executive Conference later this week. I see this as a wonderful opportunity for us to consider our online presence and how this can be integrated into our long-term promotion planning. Many staff are still very wary of  the concept of using social media to create a positive online presence but I am going into the discussion with some fantastic resources and inspiration from PLN colleagues.


Pecha Kucha Progression – Part #3

We have passed the halfway point with our Pecha Kucha project and the excitement is starting to build. Yesterday was Lesson #3 in the production process and the presentations are starting to take shape. All ideas are now in place and students are now striving to glean great graphics, devising direct discussion, snapping snazzy shots and investigating interesting infographics to use in their Pecha Kucha presentation.
