Microsoft Monday: Spotlight student work with Sway

My students recently created original political cartoons, and I wanted to share them with everyone. So, we hung them on the wall outside my room. How many of you have seen them?  I'm guessing very few of you! Even if you walk through this hallway, we're all busy trying to get to class or <gasp> the restroom.

Sway is one of the newest additions to the Office 365 suite of apps. I asked my students to use Sway for their latest presentations so we could all get familiar with the features. I created a Sway and linked the student Sways for easy access. (Sways within a Sway!) Presentations flowed smoothly with no need for students to log in to my computer, hand me a flash drive, or find an email with the shared file.

After scanning their original political cartoons using Office Lens, another great app from Microsoft, we used Sway to virtually display their original cartoons.

It is easy to share the Sway, or embed as I have done here.  Now, I can share student work with faculty and family. If you don't feel comfortable using Sway, I am happy to help you create a digital gallery of student work. You can also use Word, PowerPoint - anything - to share the awesome work our students are producing. I would love to see what you are doing on your side of the campus!
