How I Use It
I use it at the end of units, getting my students to provide a recap presentation of what they learned. I also use it in a way that allows students to share what they've created, so that they can learn from one another. It's great for really all subjects, primarily social studies and science. Students pair up and work together, building off the creativity of one another.
Prezi is an awesome tool for students to get excited about creating presentations. My class created a presentation highlighting the events of the Civil War, and they all had a ball with the assignment, finding fun ways to visually represent what they learned.
I like that Prezi was so easy to use. It hardly took anytime to onboard my students, and it was user friendly. So much so that they could teach each other and aid one another. Using Prezi got my students excited about coming to class so that they could work on their presentation. They would ooo and ahh when they saw new affects or add a cool picture.
I'd recommend this product to teachers who are working getting students to be excited about presenting information.
