Creating Digital Stories with Sway Co-Taught Lesson
March 25 at 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EDTFree Funded by Microsoft
A story is so much more than just the words on the page.
The power of a story goes far beyond simply telling the facts, it’s a way to create emotion, an experience and a connection with your reader.
Inside this 60-minute co-taught lesson, we will start to tell your story – the story of a hero!
Diving into the parts of a hero’s journey, we’ll break down our writing into bite-size chunks and ultimately create our own story using Microsoft Sway. Through words, images and design, we’ll create your own digital story to share.
