This morning I woke up trying to decide what I would post for #DigiLitSunday. As I was working my way around the internet, I received a tweet from Margaret Simon.

What I needed to do seemed obvious. It was time to play with Sway. I returned to a post from Thursday, Why Digital Literacy?, that I shared on the #cyberPD blog discussing key considerations for digital literacy. I decided to use the bullet points for content and give Sway a try. Here's my first attempt:
I'm looking forward to playing around a bit more with Sway. I liked the ability to add photos, video, and links to the Sway. The movement makes the presentation more appealing. I could see myself using it in much the same way I use Smore for sharing information in user friendly ways. I'm adding Sway to my go-to list of presentation applications. Thanks, Margaret, for pushing me that one extra step.
Today's post connects to a post I shared Thursday on the #cyberPD blog on Thursday, September 17th. The blog was established to provide a space for #cyberPD community members to share their discoveries about last July's featured study title, Digital Reading: What's Essential by Franki Sibberson and Bill Bass. The site is currently looking for participants interested in posting for October. On Tuesday, October 6th, at 8PM EST the community will be chatting on Twitter about their first steps in launching their workshops with a digital lens. Hope you can join us!
As part of a continuous collaboration among educators interested in digital learning, Margaret Simon hosts a weekly Digital Learning round-up on her blog: DigiLit Sunday. Stop by Reflections on the Teche.
