On Thursday afternoon 11th June we held a webinar entitled, ‘Microsoft Sway – what it is, how to use it in the classroom, and how to create one’.
Background to the webinar
Sway is a new, free presentation web app – part of the Microsoft Office family of products. It creates lovely eye-catching, attractive, online presentations. It is also available as a iOS app. All you have to do to get started is go to this URL https://sway.com/ and join up by creating a Microsoft ID. Then just explore! Sway allows one to combine text and media to create an online presentation with a difference! You can pull content locally from your device, or from Internet sources such as Bing, OneDrive, YouTube, Facebook etc. One can add videos, text, images, sound…you name it. Before you know it you have a stunning presentation!
