How I Use It
The bad thing about prezi is often when I go into schools their tech differs---so depending on the equipment, it may or may not load fast enough. I use prezi for NUMEROUS topics: explaining what databases are, how to use them, book talks & Nook selections, book technology, online resume courses, etc. Its adaptable for teens and I love the pathways I can create within the prezi.
I use this with an educational film classes or digital literacy technology classes. The kids loved the fact that this was a "update on powerpoint" and my teens would aptly pay attention whether they were 'reluctant readers' or 'advanced.' I love how prezi just goes over and beyond making presentations creative and dynamic.
