How I Use It
My students start the year showing me they can use linear multimedia programs like Microsoft's PowerPoint. After they have mastered the basics I extend their technical horizons with Prezi. It makes image or video importing easy. Since my students have mastered "information sharing" they can spend time with Prezi on refining their presentation. I love the fact that when they login via their school system email account the FREE educational account has more than the standard free account. Those students who have previously signed up with a Gmail or Yahoo account are excited to have the added features. Kids that are previously sold on PowerPoint become Prezi fans. They especially love the "its ready for you anywhere you have internet" feature... no more "my updated version of the file is on my home computer." After Prezi I feel like I have given my students a resources they will utilize for years to come.
My Take
Prezi is like a Present for your Presentations... the "fancy decorations" captivate the audience
