TODD’S TECH TUESDAY: Do you Prezi?

January 11, 2011

If you don’t “Prezi”, you might want to check out this fun web-based presentation tool for teachers and their students. Prezi serves the same function as PowerPoint but it uses a single “canvas” instead of slides. Text, images, videos and other presentation objects are are placed on this canvas and then grouped together in frames. The canvas lets users create presentations that are less linear and more visually interesting than traditional formats.

We will warn you that there is a bit of a learning curve involved in creating Prezis so you may want to use one of the many posted before trying your own. Other teachers have already shared Prezis on a range of subjects so check out these samples before trying your own. Here is a fairly complex Prezi on the Holocaust, for instance. There are other nice examples available on topics ranging from storytelling to algebra to gas laws.
