How I Use It
I use this mostly for introducing a project or important concept. This is an eye catching way to get attention focused on the task at hand. My students especially like the seamless youtube videos, as they don't have to wait for me to exit a powerpoint and call up another website.What tends to be difficult for me personally is exiting presentation mode. Things tend to only zoom in and out.
My Take
Prezi is a very different presentation tool than your typical powerpoint. There is a learning curve that is addressed by the built in tutorial which is always available in case you get stuck. The interface is straightforward, and the ability to link youtube and insert different media into the path of your presentation is a big plus. For the classroom, Prezi allows teachers to use these different types of media to appeal to different learners. Students who make presentations also use these features that give more creative portals, which in turn result in high quality work.
