    Pecha Kucha is a new phenomenon for me even though Professor Baker states that it has been around since 2003As a public speaker and Spanish Civil War lecturer I thought I would take a closer look at these Chit Chat teaching methods in order to enhance my own lectures Don't go thinking I am a University graduate or professor No I am asked to give lectures on various subjects to clubs and associations because I have studied said subjects over long periods of time Ok so back to the review I believe that it must be getting harder for teachers to keep children's attention span in class what with phones and I Pads hidden under desks But I doubt Mr Baker has that problem because in this book he kept my attention all the way through with his methods of describing detailing showing slides at intervals and of course his personable and engaging writing tone So imagine what this system of teaching can do live in a classroomI am very impressed and would like to look into this subject in greater detail because I read this book This is a great way to deliver a lecture and therefore I must thank Thomas Baker for bringing this to my attentionI strongly believe that initiatives like Pecha Kucha which develops interaction; both spoken and visual in the classroom are highly necessary in today's modern world where kids and adults have too many distractions to concentrate on spoken and written words alone This is a very highly recommendable book for anyone from professor all the way to someone like me who lectures for fun and entertainment

    Until I picked Changing The Classroom by professor Thomas Baker I didn't know a thing about Pecha Kucha or this wonderfully different way of teaching techniueIntrigued by the title I was never a fan of sitting in classrooms always preferring to learn in my own way I borrowed this book from a friend who recommended it passionately claiming that here was a whole new way of learningWell I can say disappointed I was not Written in conversational engaging easy to relate way this book presents us with a fascinating techniue that seems to be suitable for all education levels Pecha Kucha literally means Chit Chat and it seems to live up to this simplified description by using a fast paced presentation style full of images to convey the meaning a highly effective communication in our world of shortened attention span A mother of school age kids I know all about this modern day problem and the inability of our school system to deal with it In our world of social media it seems that the images are so much suited to convey information that multitude of wordsAnd not that Pecha Kucha is a new concept far from it But it is a method that our modern world needs to be reintroduced to as the author himself correctly points out think of the images left on the walls of caves by cave men No one needs a cave man to verbalize what you are seeing You feel it – through your eyes – to your brain – to your emotions It’s visual storytelling I wish our school teachers in all educational institutions were introduced to this book It might change our entire education system for the best maybeAfter reading Pecha Kucha English Language Teaching Changing The Classroom I can only say that I wish I could attend Professor Thomas Baker's classes

    Pecha Kucha Where have you been all my life? I had just recently heard about this techniue invented by two Japanese architects when they wanted to give a spot on presentation This method developed into a boon since 2003 by educators as an amazing tool to teach English Language Learners and As an educator I wish I had stumbled upon this during my years I spent in the classroom Thomas Baker’s book is what I would highly recommend to get you started Being a highly acclaimed educator Professor Thomas Baker teachers English and is the coordinator of the English Department in Chile His vast knowledge of the inner workings of this method are portrayed here in his book What I loved about this book was the easy format to follow It will explain how Pecha Kucha is unlike any other teaching tool you know It will explain how to use the diversified slide version using 20 slides with 20 seconds for each student to speak It is not your usual power point presentation The speaker uses 20 slides with 20 images that correspond to the message This message must be practiced and refined Here the speaker hones in on a perfected oral presentation That is the beauty of Pecha Kucha The book contains a vast array of links to videos and research of the method which I watched and was hooked This book is a MUST for educators It can be used with any type of curriculum Don’t pass this one up

    This was a very engrossing book I found it a mixture of manual and enthusiastic explanation for the use of Pecha Kutcha in classrooms of many sorts the multiple video references extremely important to emphasise that all important visual element which aids learning and teaching As an ex primary teacher of 11 12 year olds I can easily see how useful it might be for using as part of the spoken language element of the English curriculum Power Point Presentations by my pupils were used to demonstrate their IT skills in conjunction with the Spoken Language reuirements though to a restricted time Speaking for 6 minutes is a daunting prospect for such a young age indeed for some people of any age but what I liked about the Pecha Kucha was the emphasis on the spoken element rather than the text on the slide which tends to accompany a ‘script’ The tight time frame to work to whether it be the 20 x 20 Pecha Kutcha or a revised timescale is very constructive for focusing on what is being imparted I totally applaud the author’s emphasis on pupils’ practising and practising and doing some of that Whether for EFL uses or with pupils using their first language there’s a lot of sense in what Pecha Kutcha aims to achieve I particularly liked the helpful strategies and achievement targets which could be used as stated or adapted to suit the classroom environment This book is a very useful tool for using in spoken language classes

    I will boldly admit that prior to picking up this book I had never even heard about Pecha Kucha Honestly I am fascinated by this concept and wonder why I haven't come across it until now Thomas Jerome Baker does an outstanding job in crafting a rock solid case for this amazing techniue He keeps his explanations direct and concise and that in and of itself lends to the methodology behind the idea of PKI was most intrigued by its application while utilizing Power Point We are a society of instant gratification and this has certainly edited our attention spans By using Pecha Kucha we can make the most out of an allotted short time span BrilliantThe author provides many links to substantiate his claims Mr Baker has clearly gone to great lengths to be certain that his readers will come away from this book with a full and complete understanding of this practice Even to the smallest detail For example how to pronounce the words Don't worry You will learn Mr Baker covers any and all aspects and does so in such a way that you never feel inundated or overwhelmed This is a credit to his own aptitude as an authorI highly recommend this book not only to those in the teaching capacity but to anyone who is interested in broadening their own landscape when it comes to innovative thinking

    Pecha Kucha English Language Teaching by Thomas Jerome Baker presents a compelling and fascinating case for a ten year old presentation and teaching techniue called Pecha Kucha Although I no longer prepare presentations myself the techniue of using 20 slides for the duration of 20 seconds each makes a lot of sense to meTo me the most important and convincing aspect is the comparison with power point presentation In my opinion images are so much mroe suited to convey information especially since social media and the information age have reached such epic proportions of data being thrown at us every minute of the dayBaker gives a detailed description of the history and background of the method its varied uses and advantages He also discusses the best ways of preparing a Pecha Kucha and its best applications particularly in English Language Teaching and discusses the implications for academiaHe skillfully added links into the ebook to give examples of Pecha Kucha This seems a very promising concept thanks to a very powerful and enthusiastic writing style I hope the book will contribute to the spread of the techniue in wider areas of teaching since its advantages seem compelling

    I heard about that Pecha Kucha method lately so it was pleasant and interesting to me reading something about it Honestly I thought that Pecha Kucha was another boring method to learning languages uickly but it turned out that it's a brilliant way to involve any kind of audience when doing presentations or generally speaking speeches Pecha Kucha is based on slides and get the attention of your audience by making them the real protagonist of the matter you're exposing Through brief visual slides you're able to impress the information you're delivering into your attendant's minds without being boring Mr Baker applied it on the teaching of English language and I found it absolutely brilliant As a constant English language learner it was also interesting to me getting an insight of the other side of the language learning Baker's writing style is totally clear easy to understand and engaging A reading that I would recommend to whoever wants to improve his public speaking skills

  8. James Chalk James Chalk says:

    A Must Read for Educators Presenters and Other ProfessionalsEveryone can benefit from this exceptional book about a fairly new 10 years methodology for presentations called Pecha Kucha Thomas Baker does a phenomenal job explaining and making a compelling case for using Pecha Kucha in a teaching environment He informs the reader using a style that is easy to read and understand He covers the topic thoroughly without being boring or pedantic The reader may breeze through or take his time and contemplate Afterwords the same text will be useful as a reference It takes a masterful author to blend these elements so easily Mr Baker’s work should be read by every educator but others should buy this book too Anyone who does any kind of presentation or wants to learn to communicate with greater organization clarity and impact will benefit from practicing or better yet mastering Pecha Kucha

  9. C.L. Heckman C.L. Heckman says:

    I had no idea what Pecha Kucha was before reading this incredible presentation by Thomas Baker It introduces you to how this Japanese techniue of a presentation where you display 20 slides for 20 seconds each works I think that this is exactly the direction that our school systems should be headed in The children of today are so technologically advanced that I believe this style of teaching would be instrumental in the classroom with limitless possibilities I recommend this book to anyone who is a teacher knows a teacher does presentations for their job or is a student who just wants to learn Expand your horizons by picking up this book and learning everything Thomas Baker has to offer about the Pecha Kucha techniue You will not be disappointed I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review

  10. Jan Raymond Jan Raymond says:

    I was a teacher for almost ten years and the my first thought as I started reading Pecha Kucha and English Language Teaching was “I wish I had come across this during my teaching days’’ I love the wonderful way that Jerome Baker has set out his book It follows the principles laid out by this method of teaching He has incorporated images sounds with his links and words to make a complete whole The transition from one idea to the next is smoothI am truly taken up with this methodology and am surprised that I have not come across it before Yes we have changed the way an idea or concept is conveyed to children these days but this methodology takes it a step further It allows interpretation within boundaries A very informative book and a must for teachers everywhere I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for a fair and unbiased review
