Highlights of our discussion with special guest, Sarah Clark.
My name is Sarah Clark and I’m a Savannah transplant with SoCal roots (by way of Indiana, North Carolina, and Virginia in between!). I've got over a decade of family engagement, volunteer facilitation, and community involvement experience. I've trained for the United States Navy as an Ombudsman and Certified Ombudsman Trainer, but also worked heavily with family and community engagement efforts in Virginia and Georgia public schools as a volunteer. I now serve as the Family Engagement Facilitator for Pooler Elementary School.

Welcome back to Season 3 and Episode 11! We have been away from the recording studio for several weeks due to the Covid 19 Outbreak and today are excited to be recording our session from home.

Many educators and presenters in the business world share their content using Slides and PowerPoint which certainly helps by providing supporting visuals, charts, and text. The thing is - the audience is passively receiving the information with barely any interaction with the presenter. Yes, laughs, nods, and gasps count as interaction - but there is no interaction with the speaker in terms of questions, comments, agreements, and other responses.
