What is a Prezi? Oh, I'm so glad you asked.
A Prezi is a way to present information that differs from the very linear approach you find in a PowerPoint presentation. The Prezi begins by giving the viewer a "big picture" idea and then delves into the details of that idea. What I love about Prezi is that the presentations are SO visually appealing. I can't imagine a kid dozing off during one of these!
It's much easier to get the idea when you see a Prezi. Click the picture below to be directed to the Prezi site where you can view my first Prezi. (I teach at a private Christian school, so I teach Bible every morning. This Prezi covers our first lesson of the year: The Trinity.)
I'm sure there are more elaborate Prezi's out there, but I was pretty proud of this first one.
If you're not very tech savvy, it might take a bit of getting used to. I wouldn't say that it's super duper easy, but fairly. I watched two of the intro tutorials on the Prezi site and I was able to figure it out by just playing around with it. It wasn't extremely quick this first time around, but I'm sure once I get more comfortable with the site I'll whip them out more quickly.
How do you see Prezi fitting in with your curriculum plans for next year? Anyone else willing to give it a try? I'd love to hear! Leave me some comments about your thoughts, ideas, or plans to use Prezi in your classroom.
