Microsoft has been around for a long time, so it is easy to overlook some of the amazing updates that can turn your black and white activities and worksheets into interactive multimedia experiences.

In this course we will look at specific examples of traditional materials and then use TPACK and SAMR to transform that material from a Word worksheet to a Word wonder! We will look at some specific Office apps (i.e. Word, Excel, Powerpoint, OneNote...) and I will help kickstart you through transforming some materials for next year.
