Ask A Tech Teacher About Microsoft Sway

One of my favorite educational sites is “Ask A Tech Teacher“. If you have kids, I strongly recommend that you and your kids visit this site on a regular basis; and, if you are a kid like me (who is 60 years old), this site is a “must visit” site. You will learn something new every day…

For example, today I learned about “What is Microsoft Sway?”.

Sway is part of Office 365 Education and is the newest alternative to its popular PowerPoint slideshow program. Using the Sway canvas, students select a theme and then add their notes and research. Sway organizes the content, suggests images and even data, and then helps students to quickly arrange everything into a comprehensive and fully-fleshed project. If the selected theme doesn’t work, students simply click “remix” and get a different look. More advanced users can edit the pieces to fit particular colors and interests. When everything’s perfect, it can be shared, embedded, and published… READ MORE

The Galaxy S8 was a clear contender for the top spot, and the G6 finally let me place an LG phone within the top 10. To be clear, the top 10 smartphones in this list come very close to each other in terms of performance, design, and features, and you’d easily be happy with our number 10 pick as you would with our number one pick. It all comes down to your personal preference over design and features.

Featured Tech Site: Digital Citizen | 8 ways to take screenshots in Windows, using built-in tools

Digital Citizen has posted an article on how to take screenshots using the tools that are already built into Windows (see the article’s source link below).

For example, I learned that you can take a screenshot of an active window, that you have opened, by pressing Alt + PrtScn on your keyboard. The captured result, of just the window, is then saved to your clipboard.

This is only a sampling of many of the great articles that Digital Citizen has posted… I encourage you to bookmark their site.

How to take screenshots in Windows 10, Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, on all kind of devices, from desktop PCs, to laptops, to convertible devices like Microsoft Surface.

Where do you land on this computer literacy chart?

I always hear how smart or literate our kids are when it comes to computers. This is true to a certain degree, but what I have found is that they have no fear when it comes to computers; not so much that they are any more literate about computers than any other generation. I have found that most folks are pretty much on the same level when it comes to computer literacy.

Lifehacker has posted an article (and chart) that will validate what I am talking about. Take a look at the chart and it may make you feel a little better, in comparison to others, when it comes to computer literacy skills.
