How I Use It
I use Prezi for my United States History lectures. I incorporate pictures, maps, discussion questions, and videos into the lecture to get more engagement out of the students. The only limitation to prezi is that it is free only up to a certain level then you have to pay for storage. The extra storage is worth it especially since the product is high quality.
My Take
I have converted 99% of my powerpoints over to Prezi. Prezi is easier to manage and it is more engaging to the students. The interface takes a short time to understand and then you feel like a pro! I use Prezi because importing media is easier because the media can be internet based. I also love Prezi because it is cloud based so if I need to use it remotely there is access.
