Event description

Description

Tired of sending the same old “year in review” letter for the holidays? Spice it up this year with a colorful, multimedia “Prezi” that captures key photos, video and audio highlights from 2017. Prezi allows you to add motion, zoom, and spatial relationships to bring your holiday greeting to life.

This workshop consists of 2 sessions that provide the instruction and the hands-on time you need to create your Prezi holiday greeting. This workshop will be held at the digiSTORY Academy at 3210 Michigan Avenue, Kansas City, Missouri 64109.

Participants who complete the workshop requirements will earn an Open Your Prezi’s badge from LRNG-KC.

Here's a summary of what students will learn in each of the three workshop sessions:

Monday, Nov. 20th: 6:30 - 9:00 p.m.

  1. Working with Prezi: Learners will set up a free Prezi account and learn how to create a Prezi presentation that features a Christmas tree with ornaments. Participants will learn how to format the ornaments to be placeholders for memorable photos, video and images from 2016. Participants will also add text to personalize their holiday greeting. Participants will learn how to embed photos, videos and music into their Christmas Tree greeting.

Tuesday, Nov. 21st: 6:30 - 9:00 p.m.

  1. Publishing Your Prezi: Participants will learn how to use the navigation, drawing and other Prezi tools to achieve the look they desire for their greeting. Learners will set up a navigation path for viewing the greeting and will add a voiceover narrative discussing each of the year’s events depicted. They will add a music background track and publish their finished piece to the Internet. They will also learn how to translate the finished presentation into a movie file format.

Workshop Fee: $35.00 (plus Eventbrite fee) covers both sessions. By registering for the Open Your Prezi's Workshop, you will automatically be registered for both sessions.
