Sway Your Way

Today you will work in partners to create a Sway.

Choose any topic you want. The only rule is that your Sway must contain 3 different types of “cards” (text, images, videos, and documents) to show understanding of a topic. Some examples are demonstrating a math concept, telling a short story, giving a tour of a country or region, planning out your spring break, or explaining a topic you learned in science. The possibilities are limitless!

In addition to the brief information given by Mrs. Grimes, use the following links to help you create your Sway presentation. Be creative! Refer often to these DIRECTIONS for the basics. Don’t over think it!

Before the end of the period, share your presentation HERE.

This will be due by the end of next Tech Tuesday.

Here are some more links that could help you create an Awesome Sway:
