Twitter for Teachers at the Central Alberta Teachers’ Convention (CATCA) 2013

February 22, 2013

Twitter for Teachers (cover - jpg)I am super excited to be presenting my workshop, Twitter for Teachers, today at the Central Alberta Teachers’ Convention at Red Deer College.

Here’s what I’ll be sharing:

  1. Twitter overview. We will briefly review what Twitter is and how it is used in business. This course is designed for people who already have had some exposure to Twitter and want to learn how to use Twitter in a meaningful and strategic way. There is no point in having a Twitter account “just because”.
  2. Develop your personal Twitter strategy. You will learn how to develop your own personal vision about what Twitter means to you and why.
  3. Twitter time management. You will learn how to manage your time on Twitter effectively. There is no question that social media can be time consuming. In this session, we will talk about ways to minimize the time you spend on Twitter,  while still using it to its fullest potential.
  4. Twitter followers.  We will bust the myth that you need more followers. What you really need is more engaged followers. You will learn what it means to have an engaged following and how to develop one.

If you can’t attend the conference, but you are interested in the content, you can download my free .pdf guide with step-by-step, “how to” instructions. Click here to get your copy of the guide.

CILC Pinnacle Award Honorable Mention

November 8, 2012

Sarah Elaine Eaton CILC Pinnacle Award 2011-2012The Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration (CILC) is a national U.S. service that offers virtual learning programs and professional development programs for educators.

I have been offering professional development programs via webinar for teachers and other professionals for a few years now. My programs include:

Every year, CILC confers awards on those who have top scores in their program evaluations — in other words, based on how participants evaluate our programs.

Each school year, the scores of ALL program evaluations for each professional development provider are averaged based on 7 questions which are:

The presenter:

  • was knowledgeable about the content.
  • was engaging.

The program:

  • was engaging.
  • was applicable to professional growth.
  • aligned to presenter’s stated objectives.
  • contained strategies that will impact student learning.
  • will impact my teaching.

Each question has a numerical value and drives the CILC Pinnacle Award.

This year, I was thrilled to receive an honorable mention for high quality virtual programming and PD webinars. This is the second time I have received an honorable mention in the Pinnacle Awards. The first time was in 2009-2010. Check out the list of all the professional development award recipients. Mine is listed under my company, Eaton International Consulting Inc.

I love working with CILC. They create amazing opportunities for students, teachers, administrators, leaders and others to engage in collaborative or innovative programs with presenters from across the globe.

They also create opportunities for people like me, who love to do offer programs virtually, the chance to connect with new people from across the United States.

Thank you to the clients who took the time to evaluate my programs and give them high marks. I love working with you.
