If you were showing Prezi you would create a sample Prezi. 2.Add a link to your sample (embed the sample) on your professional website. You may choose to have all three samples together on one page of the website or give each tool their own page 3.Create a separate blog post for each tech tool (a total of 3 blog posts). Give some background on what your sample is showing us. Reflect on the tool: was it easy to learn and use? Can you see it helping with student instruction? Would you use it in your classroom?
