Prezi.com has been around for a few years now but if you haven’t tried it for making class presentations or invited your students to make their presentations with it, you may want to view this video. It is almost 24 minutes but it is very comprehensive and does a great job demonstrating the new features that have been added over the year.
I find that Prezi.com has the following advantages for teaching:
- It is not slideshow based but works on a single large canvas that you zoom and pan on. This is great for timelines, complex illustrations, process charts and idea maps.
- It is free for teachers and students. Look for the education licenses
- It is cloud based so your presentations are available from anywhere.
