Wow, I just stumbled on Prezi last night and decided to completely overhaul my 50+ slide PowerPoint presentation for today's teachers conference! When you see it, you just might be tempted especially since there's an education license for students and teachers offering free accounts with 500 MB limit.

I didn't know I needed a product like this, but Prezi was perfect for my presentation needs -- something about teaching with Web 2.0 tools -- because it allows me to zoom in and magnify on images like screenshots of web pages.

But that's not all. After a browsed a bit, I found some neat presentations by Ryan McCallum. I couldn't find him here, a pity cause he should be a member and a valuable resource.

I'm going to embed his presentation here and hope it works.

I went to a David Warlick TCEA lecture recently where he used Prezi. I had see this in links somewhere before, but I was impressed when I saw a presentation using it. I am going to use it some in my Spanish and English classes.

Antoinette,
Thank you so much for sharing Prezi with us!!! This software is reall neat!!!!! I'm teaching poetry this six weeks in my online high English class. I think I will have my students create their own Poetry "Prezi's"...This is really cool!


Those of you wanting to find out more about Prezi. The link is below and there is a "free" version.

Yea!

Very cool to watch, but not easy to learn to use - would love to be able to easily add links. I think you have to be a bit "artistic" to be good with Prezi - or perhaps I just need more practice?!

I found Prezi a couple weeks ago, and already have a training planned for my entire staff. Everyone loves it! I've been discouraging teachers from teaching PowerPoint for years, arguing that it doesn't teach students tech literacy skills as well as things like digital storytelling. However, PowerPoint is so easy, many teachers don't want to lose it. Prezi is the perfect solution!

Judith, as for links, I believe you can just paste the links into a text box (or paste video embed code or any html code) to get them to work.

Is anyone having students use this? I'm doing an 8th grade demo lesson Wed 3/10 and I am looking for some ideas. Any input, or examples of MS student presentations is much appreciated.
