Showing Off Graduation Moments With Sway

Disclosure: I am an Office ambassador. All thoughts, awesomeness and opinions are purely my own. I am about to make your summer! No, seriously! If you have had a graduation recently, you will totally thank me for this. Better yet, if it's not your kid's graduation, you can totally put this together for a family member or friend. Because...amazing!


What is Sway?

Your lifesaver. The thing that I am currently in love with. The new situation that I will talk your ear off about. All these things define Sway.

Also? Sway is an app for expressing your ideas in an entirely new way across your devices. Images, PowerPoint presentations, video, PDF's. These are all things you can add to Sway.

So, here's what you need to collect:

  • Pictures of the graduate on the special day.
  • Pictures of when the graduate was a baby (for high school and college folks).
  • Inspirational quotes.
  • Videos of graduation moments.

And here are the instructions:

  1. Take yourself over to Sway and getchu some!
  2. Create a new Sway. Here's what you will see...Sway_Screenshot_1
  3. Add your content. It's awesome because you can drop in text, groups of pictures, and even Tweets!
  4. You can select different layouts/themes. I, personally, like to hit the remix button at the top and watch how my Sway looks with different themes. I don't have to do a ton of changes, I just need to hit the remix and stop when I like what I see. I can also make changes (like fonts, colors and such).
  5. Bask in your own awesome at your creation!

Can't picture it? Check this out:

I loved putting my graduation Sway together. It's been great because I can now pull out my phone and get to present folks with the cool Sway I created. Also: I can simply send the link to family and friends that couldn't make the graduation. Side note: it looks like I worked my behind off doing this. I did not. Sway makes it easy to drop images. You can select from your computer, OneDrive and other cloud storage.

In fact, it was so easy that I copied my Sway and created a personalized version for the Frog Princess's BFF. Because I'm considerate like that, folks!

The best part is that you can use it on your PC, Mac, tablet and phones. Yassss! Did I mention this is part of Office 365? Because you need to know this.

Of course, this is all a crazy ploy for me to show you all of the feels from a certain scholar's graduation. Without further ado, I present to you my Frog Princess Graduation Swag!
