Pecha Kucha

What is a Pecha Kucha?

PechaKucha or Pecha Kucha is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (six minutes and 40 seconds in total). The format, which keeps presentations concise and fast-paced, powers multiple-speaker events called PechaKucha Nights (PKNs).

PechaKucha Night was devised in February 2003[4][5] by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham of Tokyo’s Klein-Dytham Architecture (KDa), as a way to attract people to SuperDeluxe, their experimental event space in Roppongi, and to allow young designers to meet, show their work, and exchange ideas.

In 2004, a few cities in Europe began holding PKNs, the first of several hundred cities that have since launched similar events around the world. As of June 2012, PechaKucha Nights were held in 534 cities worldwide (Wikipedia)

I want to use this idea to warm us up for TOK

Go to pechaflickr  and in pairs challenge each other by choosing a random topic (it may be to do with TOK or maybe not) and then have a go. You could use a way of knowing (WOK) or an area of knowledge (AOK) or another TOK related term as a topic.

Pair up with another pair to make a four and then choose one of the following debate motions.

Then have a dialogue / debate. Once you have decided who is propping and who is opping, start talking and alternate speeches through the group in the following order….. Prop 1, opp 1, prop 2 and then opp 2. Make sure you respond and rebutt the previous speech. Try to use TOK terms as much as you can.
