This recording of an OK2Ask online professional learning session from February 2018, opens in Adobe Connect. You and your students can create and share engaging interactive reports, presentations, assignments, projects, and more with Sway, a free app from Microsoft Office. This workshop will introduce Sway as attendees transform an outline to an engaging, modern presentation using Sway, Microsoft's digital storytelling, and presentation app. Create presentations that focus on content rather than bells and whistles. Get up and running within a class period. Sway is accessible on any device, making it a perfect addition to your 1:1 initiative toolbox. Participants will: 1. Learn basic use of the Microsoft Sway tool; 2. Learn three different ways to use Microsoft Sway in the classroom; and 3. Plan for the use of Microsoft Sway in the classroom. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.
