The Teacher Who Learned to Listen

BY MARK KAWAKAMI
@ VOL 31 ON SEP 07, 2016

"Teaching isn’t just about bestowing substantive knowledge to students. It’s about teaching them and giving them experiences that Google can’t."

It is easy to grasp the concept that communication is a two-way street but how many of us really put the theory into practice? How easily do we fall on the default of just trying to put our point across, specially if we think about education?

Mark Kawakami is passionate about teaching and also describes himself as a failed comedian. In The Teacher Who Learned to Listen from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 31, he shared what conclusion he came to over the years of teaching.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, December 2nd, 2016.

PKN Tel Aviv Vol #5

Tel Aviv certainly knows how to PechaKucha, this report just in from there last event on 24th November. "Last week in Tel Aviv’s 5th PechaKucha, more than 1600 people gathered in a hangar near the port. There were young design students, presidents of leading high-tech companies, artists, grandmas, actors, school teachers, journalists…" "It was soooo great, fascinating, and fun. The creators and people of Tel Aviv have a great thirst for such cultural events where well known artists and upcoming artists can meet on the same stage. Thanks to Pecha Kucha, magical encounters take place, and lots of creative energy fills the hearts and minds of thousands of people. Vive PechaKucha!"

The Goal of the Reconstruction Efforts

As we've already mentioned a few times -- and you'll find more details on the "PechaKucha for Haiti" page -- all of these events are to raise money to help with reconstruction in Haiti, with the focus being on education projects, schools, and the like. Just to give you an idea of what has happened, here are a few new statistics from Concern Worldwide US Operations Director Dominic Macsorley, delivered through Twitter: 4,616 schools surveyed, 80% damaged 431 teachers killed 4,000 students killed 250,000 school children displaced As you'll probably agree, these numbers are overwhelming, and UN numbers have over 8,000 schools destroyed. You'll find more data at the Haiti Education Cluster page.

PechaKucha School in Haiti

On the 20th of February 2010, the 7th anniversary of PechaKucha Night, 117 cities came together on a single day and held events across the globe to support Architecture for Humanity's plans for rebuilding in Haiti. Other PechaKucha events for Haiti during February took this total to 174, and with cities still holding PKN events for Haiti in March this total topped 200. Today -- 20 days later -- it gives us great pride in announcing that the PechaKucha global network of cities, organizers, presenters and fans has raised over $60,000 which allows Architecture For Humanity to build the first PechaKucha School in Haiti. This just in from Architecture for Humanity's Cameron Sinclair: Our team arrived in Haiti last week, and we will know more about specific costs in the next few weeks. Our preliminary estimates for school costs are:Basic Costs Main Teaching Blocks (3) $30,000Toilet Block (1) $5,000Cafeteria $15,000Teachers Room $5,000 Landscaping/Reforestation $5,000 Total: $60,000 We will know more about volunteer needs also in the next few weeks but probably won't have volunteers there until the summer or later, so we will keep you posted on this. Really looking forward to seeing all the 100s of presentations online in the next few weeks. Good luck with the uploading! Thank you for organizing such an amazing event!

Everybody is a Teacher

Truth, knowledge, and expertise don't come purely from the brain. Everyone has something to teach.  In today's Presentation of the Day, "Everybody is a Teacher" from PKN Toronto Vol. 25, Courtney Lawrence speaks of a moment that changed her life: she was taught a deep and valuable lesson from her special-needs sister. Courtney realized that there is a wealth of knowledge to be acquired from those who are not experts or specialists. Her life changed dramatically from that point on: she now works as a consumer insight consultant and helps businesses to understand the fact that their customers have something to teach them as well.

The Neglected Basics

“Maybe it was the school, maybe it was the programs, the teachers, the increasing descent into despair– which often happens in art school– but I did not feel i was being taken seriously. Every time I steared towards comics, I felt that I was being pulled over by the art police and fined for indecency.” In The Neglected Basics from PechaKucha Night Bergen’s 4th Volume, Visual Communication student Anette Aga addresses the lack of focus on art in academia. This is a great problem for those who would go through academia to become a designer or illustrator. Comics, in particular, being so important to so many cultures, are unduly ignored.
