How I Use It
I use Presi when presenting new information to my students. I do not use it within a lecture, but let the students control the movement of the presentation via iPad so that they can learn the content at their own pace. Also, they can easily go back and review content that was confusing to them. I also allow students to use Prezi for their own visual presentation projects. t is a lot easier for them to use Prezi on the iPads than it is using Apple's Keynote.
My Take
Prezi has saved the classroom from the standard way of presenting, both by the teachers and the students. Students seem to actually enjoy creating visual presentations with the product and seems to take less time for them to finish. Due to the way the visual presentation moves in a mapping type of process, almost like gaming, keeps the viewers engaged with the content being presented to them. Only drawback is the limited amount of templates that are available to use and you must have Internet connection to use the product.
