I’ve archived the slides on Slideshare, here:


“This was the first time I attended a webinar, apart from all the conference calls organised at my place of work. I found it interesting, first because it shared information from my area of expertise, and also because it addressed a stringent matter of all teachers nowadays- how to take the leap into the 21st century without getting severely bruised.” – Anca Costea, Little London Nursery School, Bucharest, Romania.

“Sarah Eaton set out the results of here research in a very well structured and informative talk that provided many useful ideas for engaging language learners – especially younger learners – more effectively.” – Carl Dowse, Germany.

“My work in family literacy is backed up by emerging trends of the 21st century according to Dr. Eaton’s meta-research. In all fields of learning, we need to keep current on why people are formally or informally motivated to learn and how they would like to be equipped to do so. This webinar advances us towards a clear plan of taking action towards a literacy that allows all learners to communicate through thoughts and actions and respectively be able to reflect upon them.” – Tracy Howk, Literacy for Life Foundation
