Microsoft SWAY: An Awesome Presentation Alternative for PowerPoint in your Classroom
Are you looking for a great way for your students to share their thoughts and ideas with the world? I'd like to introduce you to the brand new Microsoft SWAY. Students can take their photos, videos, PDFs and create dynamic presentations that be seen on any device.
In today's video from ISTE 2015, Tammy shows me just how quick and easy it is to create a SWAY and share it with your classroom.
What is SWAY?
Sway is an app for expressing your ideas in an entirely new way, across your devices. Watch our vision video to see where Sway is headed. By joining Sway Preview, you can help us shape that future. Start by creating your first Sway today, using any browser on your PC, Mac, or tablet. As you use Sway, let us know what you like, what you don’t like, and what you want to see us add. We can’t wait to hear from you!
