One of the key skills that we need to help students to develop is that of curating knowledge and Sway is a useful tool in this space. With ‘Sway’, we can easily curate multimodal content. It is free and it doesn’t need to be installed. I read a fantastic blog post about it on the ‘Australian Teacher’s Blog’. There are loads of ideas for ways in which it can be used across the curriculum.
My year 9 students have enjoyed using Sway recently to create brief multimodal ‘portfolios’ about their favourite poets and poems. Thanks to Mr G for introducing me to Sway in the first place and for coming up with great ideas for ways to use it in class!
