How I Use It
My students have presented book talks, historical overviews, and arguments using Prezi. They have researched and developed their points, and their work has culminated through presentations in small groups and the entire class.
My Take
Prezi is an excellent presentation tool that provides a resource other than traditional PowerPoint. My students discovered Prezi before I did, and I welcomed their request to use it. The fact that teenagers asked to use a tool was a wonderful bonus. TIP: Students must be guided when developing and preparing a PREZI. Some transitions can cause viewers to feel dizzy, as they are very fast-paced. This can be a distraction and hinder the positive impact of this presentation tool.
