How I Use It
I used students to show mastery of various concepts that we covered in class. I broke students into small groups and they had to create a review for the final. Each group had to make a presentation to the rest of the class and use prezi to energize their presentation. I enjoyed how students could quickly learn Prezi and grasped the website very quickly. Students wanted to make the presentation unique and not just a template. I would probably make the groups small 3-4 instead of the 5-6 I used but that was based on time that we had to complete the project.
My Take
I think it is incredibly important for students to learn multiple presentation styles and not just one type of software. We need to be teaching students general concepts of presentation construction not what shortcut to use. Presentations should include why we chose a certain font, background, movement, etc not just the how to do something.
