Pecha Kucha is a method of creating a slideshow that consists of twenty slides with just an image presented for twenty seconds each. The slides should automatically advance so that you don’t have to keep track of the time. This allows an entire presentation to take place in 6 minutes and 40 seconds.
While a traditional Pecha Kucha presentation consists of twenty slides, you can always adjust the length to fit your needs. This kind of slideshow can be great for students to use when time is limited. They require a good bit of preparation but if properly created and prepared for they allow for quick, concise presentation of information. Plus, since they’re short, they don’t take nearly as long to grade as a traditional presentation or paper.
