Add #TellEWA When Tweeting Your Work
The Education Writers Association (EWA) will often share your piece with its 3,000+ journalists as an “EWA Story of the Week”.
Present Online as Step to Give TED Talk
Sort the list of conferences (see 4 tips above) by location & speak at one listed as “online”. You can present in your pajamas (attendees only see your slides) while using notes (sound like a genius!). Save your recording’s weblink & use it when your TED Talk (www.ted.com) application requires a recored sample of your public speaking.
