How I Use It
I have used it in numerous presentations to add a visual element other tools do not provide. It also allows me to add perspective at the end. For example, the end of the presentation you zoom out and see a picture that represents the theme of the presentation. In the classroom, I have allowed students to extend upon other projects or presentations the opportunity to explore Prezi for creating an additional presentation. They have created some basic presentations and shown an interest in going more in-depth in the future.
My Take
Prezi is a great tool for advanced learners to explore outside of class time. The learning curve and time it takes to create a presentation does not lend itself well to in class work for the average student. It can be an interesting and powerful tool that allows students get creative. The ability to zoom and move around adds an element that PowerPoint does not provide.
