Il Tempo Di una Storia
BY SERGIO BADINO
@ VOL 10
ON OCT 31, 2014
Se ti piace scrivere (e quindi anche leggere), StudioStorie fa per te; se ami il cinema, la letteratura, i fumetti e, a prescindere dall’età, vuoi scoprire i segreti della scrittura, StudioStorie fa per te; se pensi di avere talento o, al contrario, non sei molto sicuro di averne, StudioStorie fa per te.
StudioStorie è una scuola, divertente ma rigorosa, che ti aiuterà a coniugare istinto e regole: perché scrivere non è solo improvvisazione, e neppure mero esercizio di stile. Scrivere è questione di cuore, di pancia e di testa. E siccome la tecnica si può apprendere e l’abilità perfezionare, è nata StudioStorie, la prima scuola che svela l’esistenza di alcuni princìpi comuni alla base dei diversi generi narrativi. Come in un gioco di prestigio, ma senza trucchi (tranne quelli del mestiere), l’esperienza e l’entusiasmo di Sergio Badino ti consentiranno di mettere in luce le tue attitudini e di acquisire la competenza necessaria per scrivere (bene) storie (belle).

Realizing Good Ideas
BY CHRISTOPHER SIANO
@ VOL 14
ON NOV 17, 2015
"It's not enough to have a good idea. To realize that good idea is very difficult, and that's what I work hard to do".

All of these endevours are conduits for great ideas in his community to come to fruition.

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.

Art to Live By, Thoughts on Teaching, and Photos from San Juan
Presentations In 2010, Lori Jakubow launched her online store, Art To Live By. In the presentation (from PKN Williamsburg Vol. 1) she shares her work, and we get a behind-the-scenes look at the techniques and materials she uses, as well as what inspires her. In her presentation (in Czech, from PKN Usti nad Labem), Eva Mráziková talks about drawings she's done, and also shares her philosophy on teaching. Posters We have a few new posters on the Tumblr blog today, covering PKN Orlando Vol. 7 (pictured above), PKN Kumamoto Vol. 4, PKN Cape Town Vol. 20, and PKN Kathmandu Vol. 3 and 6. Photos Here's a photo gallery [Flickr] for last month's PKN San Juan (in Argentina) Vol. 7, and please note that the city's Vol. 8 is already scheduled, to be held on November 3. Calendar Tonight (August 28) there are two PKNs on tap: PKN San Francisco Vol. 52 and PKN Buenos Aires Vol. 26. Tomorrow, you can look to the following three events: PKN New Haven Vol. 13, PKN Tampere Vol. 7, and PKN Providence Vol. 41.
Reexamining an Abandoned Amusement Park, Teaching Kids How to Deal with Disabilities, and Guerilla Projecting in Providence
Presentations A presentation (from PKN Miami Vol. 15) by Anthony Spinello and Augustina Woodgate about a project in Berlin called Kulturpark, taking place in an abandoned amusement park. Here's more on the project from the official website:In the Treptower Park forest in East Berlin, along the Spreeriver, there is an abandoned amusement park. The park, originally called Kulturpark Planterwald, was built in 1969 by the GDR and was a rare site for Soviet amusement and attraction. After the fall of the wall, the park became the family-owned Spreepark and suffered challenges of access, attendance, and economy. In 2001, the park closed from capital collapse. Ever since, visitors have regularly traversed the fence to explore this jungle of broken thrill machines. In June 2012, Kulturpark will explore the poetics and potential of these recent ruins, building upon the unique energy of Berlin’s urban, social, cultural, and political landscapes.Marina Potanina is the president of a charity foundation called To Kids About Kids. In her presentation (in Russian, from PKN Moscow Vol. 12) she talks about the project, and the creation of an animated series about school life for a group of kids, with one of the main characters being a girl in a wheelchair. In Russia, there are no books, TV, or other examples of adequate communication with people with disabilities. Marina believes that if we start by talking to kids about these issues, that our society will be changed. Posters We end the week with a Tumblr blog update that includes quite a few older posters: PKN Beirut Vol. 11 (pictured above), PKN Sevilla Vol. 9 and 11, PKN Jakarta Vol. 10, PKN New Orleans Vol. 4, PKN Chicago Vol. 18, PKN Louisville Vol. 1, PKN Dublin Vol. 1, PKN Christchurch Vol. 3, PKN The Hague Vol. 5, PKN Victoria Vol. 3-6, PKN Huddersfield Vol. 1, and PKN Los Angeles Vol. 28.

Calendar There's just one event tonight (August 31), with Kumamoto hosting its Vol. 4. Then, you can look to Saturday for the following two events: PKN Hyderabad Vol. 10 and PKN Kathmandu Vol. 6.
Landscapes in Australia (and Beyond), the Mississippi Goddam Play, and Teaching Kids Financial Literacy and Entrepreneurship
Presentations Christian Fletcher is a landscape photographer who photographs not only the beautiful South West of Australia but is now expanding his portfolio to include the rest of Australia and locations around the world. His presentation (from PKN Dunsborough Vol. 5) covers a new photography collaboration, exhibition, and workshop that is coming up in the near future. How did Jonathan Norton get out of writing a 20-page assignment? He promised a 100-page play instead, based on the Nina Simone song "Mississippi Goddam." Here's the story (from PKN Dallas Vol. 10). As we find out in this presentation (in Ukrainian, from PKN Kyiv Vol. 9), Kids-Coins is an educational project -- held inside and outside school -- that teaches children and teenagers the basics of financial literacy and entrepreneurship.

Using the Format at Conferences
The PechaKucha format goes beyond regular PechaKucha Nights, and we are often contacted about having one-off PechaKucha sessions as part of conferences or festivals, which we call "Powered by PechaKucha" events. Here's one planned for the Werklund School of Education's IDEAS: Rising to the Challenge conference in Calgary. This spring, a conference focusing on education innovation will be held on campus, and PechaKucha will figure prominently in the program. The conference, called IDEAS: Rising to the Challenge, will focus on creating opportunities for participants to inform each other’s work, to build on ideas and to challenge the ideas of learning and teaching. According to Brenda Gladstone, co-chair of the conference and Chief Operating Officer of the Galileo Educational Network, the two-day event is for innovators, designers, educators, academics, researchers and students (hence the acronym IDEAS). “Participants will build new knowledge networks,” says Gladstone. “These networks will focus on scholarship for teaching, in which research informs teaching and leading practices, and leading edge practices from the field inform research.” Read the rest of the article.
Virtual vs. Habitable Space

A Researcher Gone Practical
