Almost Effortless Visually Engaging Meaningful Communication AKA “Easily Getting Media to your Audience”
MIEE US Forum Lesson Almost Effortless Visually Engaging Meaningful Communication AKA “Easily Getting Media to your Audience”
This lesson is targeted towards teachers and administrators who are looking for time efficient and easy methods of communication with their students, parents, and community.
We have all been there, you know what I am talking about. Your students just blew you away with their amazing hard work, creativity, achievement, and teamwork. In the process of watching all of this come together you documented the entire event. You stare at your phone and wonder how on earth are you going to sort all of these photos and videos and then how are you going to get them some place that parents can see them and celebrate with their students.
Even more than scores in a gradebook, these photos and videos are the evidence, the story, that tells parents, administrators, community members and the students themselves about the journey of growth and success.
Using the Microsoft Windows 10 Photos App you can very quickly sort your media, create an album with the highlight media, smoothly import those highlight into Microsoft Sway, add captions, change the look and feel, and then release the Sway to your audience where they can view it on any internet connected device.
