Active Learning: Software

What is your favorite software?

Create a slide show presentation in Microsoft Power Point, Open Office Impress, or Google Slides to tell about your favorite software.

It can be productivity software, application software, anything that makes your life easier or more fun.

Your slide show presentation can include video, a song (rap about Word?), sound, drawings and animation, but it must be done in either Power Point or Impress.

Use your imagination and have fun.
