How I Use It
I love Prezi because it is cloud based therefore it is accessible anytime, anywhere from any device. Prezi is non sequential, it is like having a big canvas to paint, to design and to create as you may see fit, there is no specific order or sequence, which can be challenging, but it allows you to create amazing presentations.
My Take
Its features allows you to zoom in and out of your canvas, you can focus on just the section you are working on or you can zoom out to see the entire presentation. You can use your current power points and redesign them, great to tool to track your audience and convey your lessons. You can incorporate pictures, audio files, text and videos into the presentation to get more engagement out of the students. You can choose from 10 themes that include color palettes and fonts. You also have the option to create your own theme and save it for future use, as well. Every object can be resize, rotate or move on Prezi. Once the presentation has been published you have left/right arrows to move the presentation forward on a PC. On a tablet you can simply swipe or click on the corners. Prezi also offered you a list of temples to use but you can’t see what the templates look like until you start your project. Prezi is not like a traditional power point therefore there are no slides, instead you have path points. To insert pictures you have the choice to select them from Google images within Prezi. Also, you can insert audio files or narrate your presentation if you prefer. You have a free plan, which is the one I have used with my students, and there are two other plan, one that is a monthly payment plan or the Prezi Pro. cons:The only limitation to prezi is that it is free only up to a certain level then you have to pay for storage. The extra storage is worth it especially since the product is high quality. Your presentation can not be printed pros: Prezi is user friendly, easy to learn and it is more engaging to the students.
