Teacher Review For Prezi for iPad

My students love Prezi and we were excited to download the app but please be mindful that the app is not as robust as the website.

How I Use It
My student created book reports and presentations using this app. Often it took them going to the website to complete the project that they started. The app would freeze, glitch, close when saving and randomly sign the students out. The recent update helped a little but not much. Always make sure you have a plan B when using the app. I had to request the Laptop cart to finish projects.
My Take
Giving the students another way to present information is great. They really come alive when they show their prezi to the class. Again the app can be very tricky to make sure each child is able to access the website at home or in a lab to add any finishing touches to their work.
