Pecha Kucha (Too) Mucha

Yeah, I went too long. Like, way too long. Not 20 seconds per slide but more like 45. On at least one I went over a minute.

But heck, I tried it and it was fun. No, I’m sorry — that’s wrong. I have been feeling terrible about how long I went on. It was supposed to be 5 minutes, it should have been 6.5, and I went on for almost 15. That’s an imposition on everyone, took the class late, and I feel awful about it, really awful. My own learning is not always the most important thing.

Next time, less prep, just do it.

My real Summary of Learning was done over the whole course and can be seen here, as a MindMeister concept map. You know how I love concept maps.

Here’s the recording of the Pecha Kucha, as a slidecast. Audio got cut off on the last slide, but no big deal.

  1. You worry too much! It was great!

    Your reflections on the course, though highly personalized, ring true for me too, Lisa. It’s quite a tightrope walk to work with the stringent requirements of timed slides whether following an Ignite or Pecha Kucha format. Your presentation stands as a demonstration that you’ve learned many things not only from the course, but in the experience of thinking publicly about what you’ve learned.

    Kudos for stepping out on the rope Lisa. Just as I’d never time the Walenda’s walk across the chasm, I’d rather focus on the grace with which you’ve accomplished the task.

    As another who attempts to model risk-taking, Thanks! ;-)

      Thank you, Rodd. I normally don’t “feel” this much in public, but that really does make me feel better. :-)

    I don’t think that you need to apologize at all. Sometimes we go over time limits, but if what we are saying is relevant and interesting then there is no reason to worry. Yes, you went over time but not once was I watching the clock wishing it was over. You did great!

  4. I agree with the others: you worry too much AND I appreciated your role in this class of embracing while holiding at arm’s length these incredible technologies.

    I was (only) a non-credit student in this class, so maybe my opinions don’t “count.” Still, if your presentation went on for 15 minutes, I didn’t even notice. When I am engaged in learning something that is fascinating to me, the time zips by.

    Thanks again for your participation and your insights during this class. I’ve learned as much from you as from the instructor and guest speakers.

    OK, you all, thanks. I’ll stop whining now. :-)

    I commend your for taking a risk and experimenting with Pecha Kucha. I was hoping someone in our class would as I wanted to learn more about it, but didn’t think it was the best tool for my summary of learning. You already had your mind map completed, yet experimented with this form of presentation for the purpose of your final reflection. Well done! Where do you find the time??
