Why I Like Prezi - 0 views

    Why I Like Prezi In my life, I have given a *lot* of presentations. In high school, they were presentations on group projects. In university, they were presentations on research projects. At Google, they're presentations on how to use our APIs. When I first started giving presentations, I used Powerpoint, like everyone else. But I kept thinking there must be a better way, and I experimented with other options - flash interfaces, interactive Javascript apps. Then I discovered Prezi, and it has become my presentation tool of choice. Prezi is an online tool for creating presentations - but it's not just a Powerpoint clone, like the Zoho or Google offering. When you first create a Prezi, you're greeted with a blank canvas and a small toolbox. You can write text, insert images, and draw arrows. You can draw frames (visible or hidden) around bits of content, and then you can define a path from one frame to the next frame. That path is your presentation. It's like being able to draw your thoughts on a whiteboard, and then instructing a camera where to go and what to zoom into. It's a simple idea, but I love it. Here's why: It forces me to "shape" my presentation. A slide deck is always linear in form, with no obvious structure of ideas inside of it. Each of my Prezis has a structure, and each structure is different. The structure is visual, but it supports a conceptual structure. One structure might be 3 main ideas, with rows of ideas for each one. Another might be 1 main idea, with a circular branching of subideas. Having a structure helps me to have more of a point to my presentations, and to realize the core ideas of them. It makes it easy to go from brainstorming stage to presentation stage, all in the same tool. I can write a bunch of thoughts, insert some images, and easily move them around, cluster them, re-order them, etc. I can figure out the structure of my presentation by looking at what I have laid out, and seeing how they fit together. Some people do this

      Prezi is a zooming presentation creator. It is easy to use and offers you a 21st century presentation that doesn't even compare to PowerPoint. Your presentations can have a professional appearance without having to switch between slides or add transitional effects to each individual detail. Prezi provides you a canvas to be creative on so don't be afraid to think outside the box -- explore other Prezis to get ideas (they will blow you away).

      My middle school students learn to use Prezi easily. It helps teach them literacy skills, organization, critical thinking, and all other skills related to writing an essay or story.

      I am working with the math teacher and his students are creating a math story using Prezi. They love the program and seem to be enjoying the project so far.

      " On est en même temps sur le tableau ?! " S'exclamèrent les élèves à qui j'ai présenté l'application il'y a deux ans. Plus que l'aspect visuel flateur, la dimension collaborative synchrone en fait un véritable outil social à la sauce Web2.0
    Use this tool to make presentations "beyond the slide"

Information Investigator 3 by Carl Heine on Prezi - 101 views

    What if every student (and educator) was a good online researcher?  I know, you don't have the time to teach information fluency skills.  What if you could get a significant advance is skills with just a 2 -3  hour time commitment?  Here's a great Prezi 'fly by" of the new Information Investigator 3.1 online self paced class.  Watch the presentation carefully to find the link to a free code to take the class for evaluation purposes. 
    Of course you could always have you school librarian/media specialist teach information skills to your students! That's what they do!
    I couldn't agree more. Library Media Specialists, especially when they can collaborate with classroom teachers, are the best resource for teaching these skills. However the problem of access to a Librarian and the issue of scale are real barriers. I've been creating content for Librarians for a decade. They are the best! You'll find years of free resources at: This resource will help them reach more students. We had 1000 teens take this course at the Center for Talent Development. It really does work. We're hoping to reach teachers and librarians everywhere so we can pass along the skills and the opportunity. If American education was marginally rational there would be professionally staffed library media centers in every school. Since that isn't the case, I hope Internet based resources can keep the lights on for a new generation that really needs information fluency.

Prezi - Zooming Presentations - 87 views

    Prezi is a web-based application that allows you to make pretty stunning presentations. What makes Prezi somewhat unique is that there are no slides. You essentially have one big canvas on which to place your text, images, video, and more. However, that is just the start of it...
