Sway Cool Student Projects
August 6, 2019 ♦ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm ET
Moderators: Karen Streeter, Ruth Okoye and Stephanie Bass
Session Description: Looking for great ideas on how to measure learning with engaging student projects? Look no further! This workshop will introduce you to a wide range of projects that can be designed with Sway, a free edtech design tool that can motivate students grades 2-12. What’s not to love about a visually dynamic, intuitive tool that easily combines text, images, designs, audio, video and more that sparks student creativity, can be collaborative, is shareable and looks fantastic? Learn the basics in minutes and translate your new learning into powerful formative and summative projects for your students that focus on content rather than bells and whistles. Sway is accessible on any device, making it a perfect addition to your 1:1 initiative toolbox. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.
As a result of this session teachers will:
- Learn basic use of the free Sway tool;
- Understand what elements must be present to have an authentic, successful, Show-What-You-Know student project; and
- Plan for the use of Microsoft Sway in the classroom.
