  • Students may or may not have previous experience working with presentation software. If you have advanced students, you may choose to pair those students with students that are less experienced.

  • If time allows, give students a chance to practice new skills by changing a linear presentation to a non-linear presentation. If your students have a previously-created linear slide show, they may edit that presentation or you may choose one linear slide show for all students to adapt to a non-linear design. You may also have students work on other students' presentations, if these are available.
