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.

      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.

      Dommage qu'il ne soit pas encore traduit en français ! Attention de ne pas rendre malade le lecteur ;=)

      " 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
