How I Use It
It makes it easier to add videos to the presentation and it also allows me to see things other teachers have created--which allows me to adapt them for my own uses, etc. It's also great for STUDENT'S to use for presentations, because as a teacher I can go check their work and see how they are coming on the project vs. simply seeing a print out of their power points. Finally, students are always on the edge of their seats during the prezi presentations. They're always wondering when the next video clip will pop up, or where the presentation will go next!
A few times I have received emails from students asking me if they are doing their projects correctly. Instead of having to meet with them or have them give me screenshots of whatever they are doing, I can go on Prezi, search for their account and skim through their project. This allows more instant feedback.
Finally, Prezi' s apps are better than many other programs. I have never had to force close it and have been able to access whatever part of the website I need to, as well as make changes to my presentations...even while standing in line at the grocery store!
I LOVE this product. I use prezi for every presentation because it captivates the students in a way PowerPoint simply cannot. I would love to see more background options available or even the option to create your own background. All things considered I love the ease of use and the fact that I can share my presentations and use other people's presentation. It certainly promotes collaborative learning!!!!
