Get ready for our pecha kucha day online!

Creative people (like teachers) talk pretty often too much! Give a microphone and some images to a teacher– and they’ll go on forever!

PechaKucha 20×20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images.

Turns will be drawn in the name of fairness 🙂

Keep it simple – lions!
