  • Guide participants to the secondaryedtech wiki to download the PowerPoint.
  • We may not be able to narrate depending on if the computers have external mics. I don’t think we’ll have headsets.
  • If one of these is very slow then open another browser window and try another….
  • Time permitting, have participants set up a podbean account.
