How I Use It
Prezi can be used as an in-class presentation created by the teacher as an alternative to PowerPoint. I find that Prezi engages the students a bit more than regular PowerPoint and keeps them excited to see what will happen next. Prezi can also be assigned as a tool for students to create on their own, whether as a homework assignment or presentation.
My Take
Overall, I believe Prezi has its advantages. It is much more engaging than PowerPoint and allows for more creativity by the creator, whether it be the student or teacher. Prezi does have its disadvantages, though. It is not nearly as use friendly as PowerPoint and can sometimes be frustrating to work with. It is easy to get lost in the Prezi "path" and can take some time for students to get the hang of it. Overall, I recommend Prezi as a fun alternative to PowerPoint but be cautious that it may take some time for students to get used to the layout and signed of the website.
