What is Modified Pechal Kucha 10x10 versus Pecha Kucha 20x20?
Regular Pecha Kucha 20x20
Regular Pecha Kucha Style Presentation 20x20 is practiced by adults all the time. It is almost seven minutes of total speaking time, live, speaking in detail on a topic. This is a little bit much for most beginning elementary-age (8-10 year-old) students. Some students can work up to this length though.
Modified Pecha Kucha 10 x 10
Modified Pecha Kucha Style Presentations 10 x 10 is half the slides and half the time spoken per slide as regular Pecha Kucha 20 x 20. This time and number is more appropriate to begin at the elementary level at the modified length.
Modification #1: Shorten the number of slides and length of talking
Modified Pecha Kucha is designed to teach elementary students how to build an image-based and voice-based presentation in a Pecha Kucha style appropriate to elementary age students.
Modification #2: Recording the speaking parts
The other main modification we make to the real-life actual Pecha Kucha style presentation is that we record our audio. We record presenters for several reasons. We use Flipgrid assignments with a two-minute recording window for the modified 10 x 10 presentations. This gives the students enough time to begin the slides, take a breath, and start talking.
Modification #3: Restrictions
For the first one or two attempts at Modified Pecha Kucha, as the teacher:
