How I Use It
The sway app can be used to quickly create a story complete with images and text. Students were allowed to take photographs and immediately use them to tell a story. Allowing them to flex their creative image skills along with their writing abilities.
My Take
Simplicity is my favorite part of the sway app. Students control the images and then tell their story creating a timeline of an event or process. It would be great if the sway app would allow videos to be inserted. Students can open their accounts in Office 365 and add YouTube video to their sway.
