The latest edition of the MIE Minute has landed in the inboxes of our Expert Educators, and contained within it are three items that we’re asking them to help us share with the broader education community. In this blog you’ll find out about some creative uses or new features of Sway, Office Mix and OneNote.
Sway is an app for expressing your ideas in an entirely new way, across your devices, and can be accessed from Sway.com, while Office Mix and OneNote are both included in Office Pro Plus, which is free for students and staff (click here to check your eligibility for free Office at your school, college or university).
