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.
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
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?
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.
