How I Use It
I use it about once per month with my class just to switch up the presentations. I also make it an option for them to present work, although I emphasize that it is best for storytelling and/or affinity-style diagrams.
My Take
I really love Prezi and it is a wonderful presentation tool for teachers and students (4th and up). The problem when you have a large class and all presentations done in Prezi is that after a few, you'll start to get really motion sick! The kids love to zoom way in and then zoom way out and after four or five I can't handle it any longer! Overall, though, the kids love the play with it and I like that they can present using a new tool beyond .ppt
