As a consequence of the small (but high quality) volume of submissions to take part in the Teachers in the Den session at this years Handheld Learning Conference we have decided to pull this strand and replace it with a new one called "Pecha Kucha for 21st Century Educators".

If you're not familiar with Pecha Kucha, it's a game.

The rules are simple. Anybody can present but you're allowed 20 images that you show for 20 seconds each giving you a total of 6 minutes and 40 seconds before the next presenter is up. You can't spend 6:40 on one image/slide or 2:20 or any other denomination, you can only spend 20 seconds on each image/slide. It's all part of the fun and keeps presentations concise. If the facilitator decides then the presentation may be open for discussion with the audience otherwise it's straight on to the next presenter.

Each presentation is pre-loaded onto a laptop (Powerpoint or Keynote) and then is ready to go. The facilitator will make a brief introduction of the presenter and then the talk begins. Each presentation must be configured to advance every 20 seconds, so it's up to the speaker to keep pace with their slides.

More information about the origins of Pecha Kucha here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pecha_Kucha

The first 50 people arriving at the Pecha Kucha room wishing to present will be given a draw ticket which will then be drawn at random to present.

Remember that this is being held on the FREE day so anybody can come even if they haven't signed up as delegates for the full conference  Cheesy

I'm hoping that this will be a riot!

Now, one more thing...

I need a rambunctious and knowledgeable facilitator or two to help make this work.

Any volunteers? please email me!

Cheers

Graham

Come on then you lot!

Who's up for it?

Who's going to play?

We've had a lot of positive discussion leading up to the planning of Handheld Learning 2008 about new types of sessions, "unconferencing" and "learners voice" well this year we have all this and more supported in abundance. Let's hope everybody responds positively, especially those who were asking for it  Wink

Please post your names here those who intend to take part in this session.

Remember this is one of the fun bit's of the conference and will be a great lead into the evening party and full conference the following day.

Don't be shy now...

Cheers

This sounds fun.... would something like 'Learning Through Virtual Worlds' be allowed?  I'm not an educator - I just write about games, but I'm a strong advocate for them in terms of how people learn life skills (and even a business skills from games like Eve Online) from online games.

[Edit: Just clicked that it's HANDHELD learning - a lot of those games are going for the 'always involved' stuff - with mobile clients planned, and chat facilities where people out of game can contact people in game...does that make it relevant?]

If that's the kind of thing you're after, I think it would be fun to get some practice speaking in public - even if it is just for six minutes...

Hi Etali

Yes your subject would definitely fit and presenters do not have to be educators. Also topics don't have to be specifically handheld or mobile. The conference itself looks at mobile & ubiquitous technologies and how they are changing learning & teaching practice.

For the Pecha Kucha session the principle theme is about ideas to revolutionise learning and teaching practice so this gives everyone a lot of scope.

Cool, thanks Smiley  Nice to know there's plenty of room to run with.  I'd hate to show up and have totally missed the point. 

I'm looking forward to seeing what other people do for theirs.

I think this is going to be a great event. If I come up with some brilliant idea I'll definitely give it a try, unless Graham has me doing other conference stuff at that time. I tell you, he's working us steering committee members hard  Wink

This is looking set to be great fun!

Dan Sutch from Futurelab has kindly agreed to facilitate and disorganise  Wink so please support this excursion from the traditional pre-organised "sage on the stage' approach to conferencing.

Sessions starts at 14:00 and is being held in the Smeaton Queen Vault (lower ground floor)

Just turn up with your 20 slides presentation with each slide advancing automatically after 20 seconds giving you a presentation slot of 6'40.

There's a laptop in the room running Vista and Powerpoint 2007, so bring your presentation on a memory stick if possible. Mac users please bring your own including VGA adaptor.

Each slot may then precipitate a discussion with fellow delegates and attendees.

This is free to attend session so please get involved.

Sounds good! In- and out- of [3.D]world technology is the future :-) Sadly I'll still be on a train...Don't think I can get SL on my phone (yet!), but I wonder if I could do one via sms or twitter...

I wasn't sure that this was going to work, but in the end it was excellent and one of my real highlights at the conference.

Mark Kramer very kindly filmed mine and broadcast it using Qik.

I hope that the Pecku Ketchup is repeated next year.

I'm so pleased this session worked out and thanks for everyone who got into the spirit of it!

Special thanks goes, of course, to Dan Sutch who agreed to host it Smiley

We are collecting presentation material for inclusion in the HHL 08 conference archive that provides an invaluable resource to the rest of the community. Anybody who presented at HHL 08 in this or other sessions please feel welcome (and thanked) for sending in their presentation to me  - graham (at) handheldlearning.co.uk using either http://www.yousendit.com or http://www.mailbigfile.com

Thanks to all again!
