Slide12:

First Umi’s task was for students to get to know each other and to get used to talking about things that interested them. She asked students to bring to class a phot o or a picture that they would like to share. If they brought no pictures, Umi showed them how to find interesting pictures using Google Images. Students can also use pictures from Facebook. There are many pictures there. In class, students shared stories about these pictures. They helped each other in finding the right words. No real teaching was taking place as yet beyond the Google search. As students shared stories, discussions emerged. Students asked questions of the presenters. Spontaneously students agreed that they would love to follow up, find more pictures and create fuller stories. In Umi’s case, all students wanted to talk about plants and ho w they use them for gardening and medicine. The Pecha Kucha scene was set. In Umi’s case, because the students did not speak much English, it was agreed that they presentations will be short 2-3 slides. How to begin? – Sharing Darwin experiences

Slide13:

An example of a story created by Umi’s students Another student shared her interest in lemon grass. She showed in her presentation that, in her culture, lemon grass is used widely as a cooking spice. Describing the plant, she said that because of the sharp edges of the plant, she decided to plant it closely to her fence. This is , so that her children could still play safely in the garden. Furthermore , lemon grass is also used as protection against intruders that may jump over the fence. The plants are easy grown and she managed to sell them at the market knowing that many people are using this particular spice in Darwin. The presentation generated class discussion and questions about other uses of lemon grass , such as medicine or as a drink and so on.

Slide14:

Smart ideas by Umi to assist her students The main resource was the Internet Students learnt to use the Internet for finding vocabulary Students types phrases in Google to see if they matched texts in English. If not, students looked for phrases which did match English expressions. Students used iPads for making photos and for preparing presentations. Many did not need to use the PowerPoint. They co-edited texts in groups and helped each other Students practised speaking, recorded and re-recorded their narrations before they were happy with their final productions. Pecha Kucha website has good resources for teaching students to pronounce English – a teacher can use these in class to sensitise students t some regularities

Slide15:

What next? How to turn these small steps into a Pecha Kucha format? The key is to explore with students how their stories can now be expanded to be interesting to a larger audience . Students may have some ideas as to how. Or, students can use the Internet and explore ideas.
