How I Use It
I use Prezi when doing teacher led instruction, whole class discussions, and student assessments. It is difficult to have students use Prezi because the majority of 6th graders do not have email addresses. To combat this, I had to create a generic classroom email address and password students could use to sign in and create a Prezi. The only problem? All the Prezis are in one account which makes it difficult to sift through; however, you can separate them into different folders.
My Take
I find this website to be an amazing tool because it allows students to use an online format when creating a specific project. I find this refreshing to Power Point because while Prezi has similar features, students have to learn how to use a new resource. Prezi offers tutorials students can watch as well if they are stuck when working at home. Prezi saves everything onto the user's account so a student can log in anywhere and edit his/her Prezi.
