Bringing the world into your classroom, updates to Sway and OneNote – all in the MIE Minute

The MIE Minute newsletter was sent out to our Expert Educators all over the world last week, and we’re pleased to be able to share some of the items included within it to our wider education audience.

For those of you unfamiliar with the MIE Minute, it is an email publication sent out to our MIE Experts on a bimonthly basis, including various items of content and activities that they, as Microsoft Expert Educators can act upon to help not only their own students and immediate colleagues, but other teachers in their local area and, through digital channels such as social media, the broader global education community.

In each edition of the MIE Minute are three news items or teaching resources which the recipients are encouraged to share out into their networks, and we’d like to do our bit by posting them here as well.

We’re excited to announce the start of these rollouts, as well as other changes that expand the type of content you can add and the ways you can visualize the multimedia that brings your Sways to life.
