Office Mix: Interactive Power Point Slide Creation

Do you have already created Power Power Point presentations that you'd like to make more student centered? If so, Offic Mix may be just what you're looking for. Office Mix is a Power Point Add On which allows you to narrate already created slides, add questions and or comments, and share with students to participate with on their own, via their laptops. The first eight of these video tutorials from Microsoft will help to get you started. I was originally introduced to Office Mix at a workshop Joann Sinisi and I attended last fall, and I think it's a robust and valuable tool for Micosoft product users. If you're interested in using this tool, I'm more than happy to assist!

NOTE: At the moment, downloading Office Mix requires Tech admin approval; you'll need to see someone from tech to enter their password credentials before using.
