How I Use It
I use Prezi to deliver basic content to students for topics like Grammar and Background info on a text we are starting. I use the basic (free) version, but there is a premium version. It presents information with a flow-like quality and I can add other media to it like a Youtube clip or music. I also have assigned students to use it as well to create presentations for class. They can download them to a flashdrive or send me a link which I can bring up on the Smartboard. That way there is less chance for technical issues or forgotten assignments.
My Take
Prezi is a way to present basic content information in a visual format. It is similar to PowerPoint but more with more engaging graphics and a more animated presentation style. It is fairly user friendly and the learning curve is about 20 minutes for a moderately tech-savvy teacher.
