How I Use It
I personally use Prezi for presentations, as well as teach my students (grades 4-8) how to use Prezi. Students then choose to use Prezi for their own presentations and for other projects assigned by other teachers. I have used it to present English parts of speech, and embed You Tube videos of the Schoolhouse Rock videos that apply to the parts of speech the Prezi is referring to.
Prezi is a great presentation tool for both the student and teacher. It is user-friendly and a great alternative to a Notebook 11 or PowerPoint. The visual appeal of the presentation is what holds students' attention. I have had students as young as fourth grade create Prezi presentations. The ability to insert images, voice overs, You Tube videos, files, background music, and other additions enhances the presentation and holds student attention.
