I am presenting next weekend at the ATESL (Alberta Teachers of English as a Second Language) conference in Edmonton. I've always wanted to try the Pecha-Kucha (pronounced peh-CHAKH-cha) format for a presentation - 20 slides of 20 seconds each - for a presentation of 6 minutes and 40 seconds per presenter. You may have heard of similar formats like "Ignite". But the conference planners gave me an hour - so I'm just going to pretend to be 8 presenters and talk about 8 different topics - all theme related but still try out this format. I like the idea that I could then take apart the presentation and share just a piece of it in a staff meeting or participate in a real Pecha-Kucha presentation (possibly at the upcoming Tech Testdrive in the spring). But isn't the photo perfect!! We'll see how it turns out!

- Post my own photos and organize them into sets and collections.
- Submit my photos to groups for others to review, to play games, and complete challenges.
- Discover amazing photos from others (love those who share under a creative commons licence!)
- Create galleries of photos from others on themes. (Great for school)
Try this gallery to see some pictures I have run across that made me smile.
