The picture above is meant to represent the mixed feelings I have about being finished this class and finished my Masters. While I am happy to return attention back to my gr. 3 classroom and continue to experiment with all the interesting things I have been learning, it is with some hesitation that I step away from the University.  I have enjoyed the past twenty-seven months of learning time.

The first thing I did to prepare for this final project  (Summary of Learning), was to decide on the format – which I did very early on.  Pecha Kucha is a presentation style that I learned in my very first Masters class.  I wanted to do it again as my very final Masters project.  Every week during this course I kept a journal of what I was experiencing in EC&I 834. I included things I was reading about, online tools I was trying, as well as insights gained from my own blogging experience.  I also wrote about information gathered from reading my colleagues blogs, and from trying out different digital tools my classmates were experimenting with.

After I gathered all the information, I picked the most valuable pieces to include in my Pecha Kucha project.  I used only pictures that were Creative Commons (taken from the website – Compfight). I made the slides first using Powerpoint and added in the timing so that each of the 20 slides would run for 20 seconds:

Then I set up my cell phone on a tripod to record myself (after I had rehearsed the timing of my 20 slides).

Here is a link to the script I used:

For the video recording – I used a green screen on the wall and added some powerful photography lights:


After creating the green screen video, I saved it to my desktop, along with the other Powerpoint video. Then using software called VSDC Free Video Editor, I combined the two files:

This video editing software was fairly easy to use and it allowed for the video overlay of the green screen video on top of the Powerpoint video.

I then uploaded this video to You Tube.

And voila…
