Every year, Microsoft welcomes some of the world’s most innovative educators and students from around the world at its annual E2 Summit to share best practices on how to use technology to enhance student learning. At this year’s summit, the Office Mix team got to meet Kelli Etheredge, director of Teaching and Learning Resources at St. Paul’s Episcopal School in Mobile, Alabama. Kelli shared the story of how St. Paul’s students used Office Mix to teach each other about human body systems in their 4th–grade science class.
The next thing she knew, the Office Mix team was interviewing the students and their teachers over Skype for Business to hear firsthand how they learned about Office Mix, how they created mixes for the first time, and more importantly, how it impacted—and improved—the students’ desire to learn and listen. Episode 1: 4th graders become teachers at St. Paul’s tells their story in a lightweight and visually appealing way thanks to Microsoft Sway.
Why not use Office Mix to tell your student’s story? For now, we focused on their words and pictures. But we reserve the right to make the movie version as a mix!
