PechaKucha or Pecha Kucha (Japanese: ペチャクチャ, IPA: [petɕa ku͍̥tɕa],[1] chit-chat) 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. (Source: Wikipedia)

An idea for teaching speaking skills. This year, Year 8 students present short stories as their speeches in a story telling unit.
I could use a Pecha Kucha format to telling a story. 20 slides would cover each student in the class and they would speak for 20 seconds each. It would foster listening and collaboration skills, as they would have to pay attention to what preceded them and then continue to story on.
Next task – finding 20 interesting images for the slides!
We will see how it goes.
