How I Use It
In technology courses I teach at the graduate level, I have introduced my pre-service special education teacher candidates to Prezi as a tool for providing instruction, as well as an option to give a student w/ a disability as a modification to a traditional PowerPoint or poster presentation. Some of my grad students have used Prezi's in their own classrooms with much success, but have commented that students do become easily satiated w/ having to create presentations on course content.
My Take
Templates allow students to make online presentations that include elaborate transitions and often brilliant backgrounds or graphics. Audio and animations can be embedded within the presentation. Prezi allows students who may lack creativity with digital design to develop a quality presentation. However, post-secondary use of Prezi often looks unprofessional, is hard to read at a distance during workshops and conference, and usually fail to conform to APA or MLA standards for poster presentations.
