東工大バスケ85年史編纂活動をテーマに英語パブリックスピーチ練習

This is the manuscript for the presentation made by MotoK at the regular meeting of KeyForce Toastmasters Club, on the 4th June 2013.

"Title; 85 Years History of Basketball in Tokyo Tech"

Good evening ladies and gentlemen, please confirm that you have two handouts at hand. A picture and a diagram.
This evening I'd like to introduce you to a web book titled as "85 Years History of Basketball in Tokyo Tech." The history book was published on the 10th April 2013 by an alumni association in which I am serving as President. Please have a look at this. This is the iPad which I used when I introduced the web book to President of Tokyo Tech. You can flick on the display to move pages. I wrote the opening remark and Dr. Mishima, the president of the university wrote the foreword. Please see it closely, as I pass this device around you.
I'd like to brief you five essential points which I experienced through the activity of the publication. Five points are purpose, strategy, outcomes and impacts, finding and expectation in the future. Let me brief one by one.

Point 1. The purpose of the activity; There are two purposes.
a) Enhancement of the network among 400 members through collaboration in the activity. There are big diversity in ages.
b) Improvement of the quality of the activity of the basketball team, by recognition by the students that they are living in history.

Point 2. The strategy with methods and tools used in the activity.
a) Full use of available methods of communication such as mail, email and others to collect information, in order to avoid constraints due to diversities in members’ capacity in communication.
b) Good use of cloud computing system to install big data of information.
c) Web publishing first followed by printed publication.
d) Good use of iPad for presentation of web publication.

Point 3. Outcomes generated so far.
a) Students understood that they are making history which they are going to write in the future.
b) Those who directly participated in the activity enjoyed both of excitements of the achievements and the experiences in the activity.

I'm afraid that I must skip other items due to my time limitation.

c) President and his officers of the university are happy with our achievement, because of its uniqueness in the University.
d) Executive members in the Japan basketball association are interested in spreading this kind of activity in the field.
e) A certain national library shows interest in owning the history book.
f) I got knowledge and skills to use iPad to make my life much richer.

Point 4. Findings.
We had many findings. The greatest finding is a picture found in the commemorative album of graduation in 1930. Please have a look at the picture at hand. The album had been possessed by a member's father who graduated in 1930. When the father passed away, the member found the picture in the album. As you see, the picture was designed in a highly sophisticated manner and contained comprehensive information. We can see who played what role in the team and how they played basketball at that time with which opponent team, which is exactly "A picture is worth a thousand of words". I am deeply impressed every time I see it. I respect these seniors' deed a great deal. This picture gave us the basis to decide the title of the book as 85 years history. This picture is the greatest finding in the activity.

5. Expectations for the future.
I believe this activity should better be continued all through the endless chain of history.

要旨:
皆さんこんばんは!今日は、「東工大バスケット85年史」というウェブ出版をご紹介します。このウェブ本は、私が会長を務めている同窓会から2013年4月10日に出版されました。このiPadは、私が三島東工大学長に報告した時に使ったものですが、指1本でページを繰ることができます。このデバイスを回覧しますからやってみてください。このページに私、このページに三島学長が出ています。
さて、この出版活動を通して経験した5つの要点についてお話します。目的、戦略、成果、発見、将来への期待についてです。一つずつお話します。
目的は、メンバーのネットワークの活性化とチームのメンバーが歴史を意識することによって部活の品質を向上することの二つでした。
戦略としては、メンバーの多様性に対応するために、例えば、ICT格差に対応するために多くのコミュニケーション手段を用いました。沢山の情報を効率的に処理するのにクラウドコンピュータを利用しました。その他です。
成果としては、学生の意識の変化、活動に参加したメンバーの達成感と経験、学長以下関係者、外部の関係者からの我々のユニークな活動に対する評価が挙げられます。
最大の発見は、1930年の卒業記念写真帳のなかにあった一葉の写真です。この写真は、会員の一人が、父上の写真帳から発見したものです。当時のメンバーの名前、役割、参加した大会、相手校などの情報がわかるもので、A Picture is worth a thousand words. の諺の通りです。私は当時の先輩に対して尊敬の念を抱きました。
将来も、歴史が続く限り、歴史活動が続くことを期待します。
