During the last two years, schools involved in the pilot project e-Schoolbag – Introduction and Use of E-content and E-services have been applying e-textbooks and e-services in lessons, as well as for students’ individual learning. The textbooks and services have been developed in the framework of the project.
At the closing conference different uses of e-content and e-services for learning and teaching will be presented by invited speakers. They will present examples of good practice, where learners learn from teachers, teachers from learners, and learners from other learners.
The invited presenters will face an unusual challenge. They will have to prepare a presentation of 20 slides that will be shown for 20 seconds each. Slides will automatically change after 20 seconds. The presenter will have to follow the pace of the slides and the content of each slide.
In the language of mathematics, each presenter will have 6 minutes and 40 seconds available:
20 * 20 s = 400 s
400 s = 6 min 40 s
The 20 X 20 style is widely known as PechaKucha. PechaKucha was devised by Astird Klein and Mark Dytham in Tokyo in 2003.
At SIRikt 2015 we are introducing it as a new presentation style. We are going to award the participant of the E-Schoolbag closing conference, who will find a funny and innovative Slovene translation, and tweet it using #pechakucha at @sirikt.
