Final Project Work in breakouts to continue work and start Presentation

ASSIGNMENT: Final Project 3 — Publication and Presentation (Week 10)

Projects will be published IN SOME FORM by class on Thursday, March 9 but do not need to be finalized.

After getting feedback on the presentation in class, the FINAL VERSION OF YOUR PROJECT IS DUE BY 9:00 pm on Monday, March 14th, the end of our scheduled exam time.

  • One member of each group should write a blog post giving a brief introduction and providing a link to the final project.

On the last day of class each group will give a Pecha Kucha style presentation on their completed and published project.  The rules of such a presentation are below, with credits for the format going to Ryan Cordell, via Jim Spickard.

A Pecha Kucha 1/1/5 Presentation
In this presentation, you will have exactly 6 minutes and 40 seconds to present your material: 20 slides that auto-advance every 20 seconds. These presentations will follow the Pecha Kucha presentation format. Here are the rules:

  • You will have exactly 6 minutes and 40 seconds.
  • Your presentation will use PowerPoint (or Keynote or Google Presentations), but you’ll be restricted to 20 slides. No more, no less. Period.
  • Each slide must be set to auto-advance after 20 seconds. No clickers, no exceptions.
  • Your presentation must also follow the 1/1/5 rule. You must have at least one image per slide, you can use each exact image only once, and you should add no more than five words per slide.
  • You may trade off between your members however you see fit, but the presentation should be rehearsed and polished.

You should not attempt tell us everything that you might say in a written paper nor explain every nuance of your argument. Instead, you should be looking to give us an overview of the project and highlighting its particular strengths. When designing the presentation, think SHORT, INFORMAL, and CREATIVE. Perhaps surprisingly, the Pecha Kucha form’s restriction (paradoxically) promotes this creativity.

Example Presentation

Below is an example of how this might work based on a previous class project. To set Google Slides to autoadvanced, you have to publish to the web and change the “delayms” parameter to 20000 milliseconds. (View source below to see the embed code.)
