Presentation Options in Sway Form

Last week I was supposed to meet with a teacher at the middle school to discuss what options were available for presentations. The list is fairly lengthy, so it is hard to really narrow it down. But, of course, we had a snow day and my meeting was cancelled.

To help explain some of the options that I found, I created a Sway (from Microsoft), which is shown below. Overall, I like Prezi, Google Slides, Emaze, or Sway. Any of those seem fairly easy to use and cover a wide range of presentation styles. If you are looking to give your students options, feel free to use the presentation I made to help them choose what they'd like to use.

Keynote Interactivity (and my 200th post)

When I talked with teachers about Nearpod last week, there was a teacher at the highschool who really wants to keep his animations within Keynote while having the interactivity like Nearpod . I told him that I'd look into it to see what was possible. Short story: I'm not having any luck at all.

If you were a parent of kids like me, you spent countless hours vacuuming up those little pieces or hunting for them with your bare feet in the middle of the night (ouch!). When I heard about Build with Chrome yesterday, you can understand why my eyes lit up. What is Build with Chrome? It's this:
