Every few weeks we have a presentation roulette where a student is picked randomly to present their progress in their work so far. The presentation is done in the style of Pecha Kucha.
What is Pecha Kucha?
PechaKucha 20×20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically (20 seconds per slide, total 6m 40s) and you talk along to the images. You can find more information on the following link: http://www.pechakucha.org
Why Pecha Kucha?
This makes your presentation more fun, creative and engaging with the audience. If you mainly have images on your slides instead of text, the audience will listen to you as you talk rather than read off the board. I definitely prefer presenting this way!

When we head to class we are given a raffle ticket with a number on it. I was nervous during class and even more so when a number was being picked out. Luckily sometimes a number will be drawn to win a prize and you don’t have to present. I had to draw a number and I picked my own number 32! The price was strawberry laces but one of the lecturers changed it to a massive bag of marshmallows because of my fluffymarshmallow.wordpress.com blog and my obsession I had with them! That made me quite happy and then I was given the choice to present or not so I decided to present because of the bag of marshmallows and get some feedback. The marshmallow bag was also too big for me to devour on my own so I offered them to anyone I saw!
I was a little bit nervous but it went well, though I had just too much to say with so little time per slide! I didn’t practice the timing, just the gist of what I wanted to say on each slide.
One lecturer advised me on printing professionally to ensure a clean crease, minimal costs and services etc. I have contacted several printing companies but so far I have had no joy with finding a solution.
My supervisor advised me to decide on the story for each of the 4 characters before continuing modelling my characters. So far I’m thinking of teaching the following:
1. Treating a burn
2. Treating a cut/graze
3. Taking care of a nose bleed
4. Dialling 999 or taking care of a bruise
I also need to come into contact with First Aid Aware with two other students who are working with them too. I think we will present our work in mid April to gather their thoughts and opinions and make any adjustments according to their suggestions.
