I’m the first to admit I’m a bit of a dinosaur when it comes to technology. It’s not that I’m not forward thinking, it’s more that I’ve spent way too many hours learning “the new best thing” only to have my district ditch it six months later for a newer, better best thing that only takes twice as long to learn. But Microsoft did something with their new Sway program that has created something every teacher needs. And they did it by asking teachers what they needed.
