How I Use It
Students use prezi to create small presentations online. They like prezi, but they don't love it because it isn't always clear where your information will appear and the templates don't allow students to do what they want in the presentation. One of the reasons I wanted them to try it was so they could see there were other tools online they could use for presentations.
My Take
I'd like Google Drive - presentation better because it is easier to use and straightforward. I found teaching them how to use it was more time consuming than PowerPoint or Google Drive and the program didn't flow as easily.
