Some benefits of using SWAY:
- multiple ways to share your SWAY
- interactive and dynamic
- add your own text and pictures or use the search feature which will provide copyright-free results in various multimedia formats
- use the template suggested by SWAY or "remix" it to find another of your liking
- no need to download anything

Check out these SWAY presentations created by teachers during our WOW Tech sessions. You will need to log into SWAY with your Alief email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and your network password.
