Erica has the gift of making a very ‘technological’ subject accessible and understandable for everyone… even those who are not quite up to speed yet with all the ins and outs of Social Media. Her wealth of examples and stories infuse what could be an overwhelming topic with a sense of normality and fun. Her willingness to go above and beyond when it comes to encouraging the learning process, creativity and support is highly appreciated and mark her as a very generous educator.Ina Stockhausen
I have had the delectation of hearing Erica speak at IOETI conference in Egypt, great stories and a shipload of inspiration. She’s very well rounded and knows how to integrate those stories into everyday life and business. Erica’s authenticity and enthusiasm on stage is simply infectious. Erica gets it. She understands the importance of marketing, social and traditional media and clear communication strategies. I would highly recommend her services.Tharwat Abouraya

Defining Your Story
One of the biggest hurdles in developing and sharing your story - whether for personal branding, business, or traditional storytelling - is in defining what the story is that you are trying to share and ensuring that it meets your goals. This mini-course walks you through that process.
Write & Code Interactive Stories
Contrary to popular belief, it is possible for any of us to write and create beautifully illustrated stories complete with animated characters, music and sound effects. In addition to that, these stories can be interactive with clickable features. Cue the online platform, Elementari. Their mission promotes arts, literacy, and computational thinking in an engaging and collaborative way; pulling a community of artists, musicians and writer together. They want anyone, especially kids, to be able to write and code interactive stories. Throughout this course, our instructor Lori, will guide you through video tutorials on how to use the exciting features of Elementari so you will be able to complete your very own book!
