How I Use It
I would use the Prezi app to create student learning presentations in a mobile environment. It's a lot better looking than Powerpoint. Students could also use Prezi to present their learning or to give a class presentation. However for students that aren't tech savvy, I would stick with Powerpoint.
My Take
The Prezi app can be used as a teacher presentation tool for introducing information to students. The tool is powerful, however, it's much simpler to create Prezis on a desktop. For students, especially under 13 and for students with developing technology skills, the app can be very difficult to navigate. Advanced and older students can make dynamic projects with the tool, though. I really like the visual quality of the app-the Prezis look very sleek. However, it's difficult to add slides and customize movement on a tablet.
