A Teacher tweets, and the Sway and Wakelet teams repond with embed integration in under a week!

This post has been republished via RSS; it originally appeared at: Education Blog articles.

Last week, we wrote a blog telling the story of educator Becky Keene who put out a tweet asking for Wakelet integration with OneNote.  Wakelet and Microsoft put heads (and code) together and quickly implemented this integration, and now OneNote is riding the #WakeletWave.  You can read the full story in this blog post and read about the educator reaction in this Wakelet covering the fun Twitter response.


This week the educator listening (?) story continues.  After we launched the Wakelet and OneNote integration last week, a Teacher from Wales, Julie Fletcher, aka the #SwayQueen, responded with a tweet asking about the ability to integrate a Wakelet into Microsoft SwaySway Queen.jpg

I met Julie at the Education Exchange (E2) conference in Paris in April and saw first hand her passion and innovation using Sway.  She has pushed the boundaries of Sway and worked closely with students on some inspiring work.E2 Julie.jpg


Being inspired by the #SwayQueen herself, the Sway and Wakelet teams worked quickly to allow the embedding of Wakelets into Sway.  To accomplish this, all you need to do is generate an Embed code in Wakelet, and paste into Sway's Embed code interface.  To see how to easily do this, check out the video below.SwayWakelet GIF.gif


So a big thanks to Julie Fletcher, and all of the other educators out there who are always sending us great ideas and feedback.  We promise to keep listening ? (and acting on it!)
