Looking for a way to move beyond traditional slides or add new life to old presentations? Prezi is an easy-to-use presentation tool (as easy to use as PowerPoint) that provides a fresh, new, interactive way to present information to your students. Driven by Flash animation, Prezi allows you to organize course content in logical ways, while at the same time establishing multiple connections between multiple fields of knowledge. You can use Prezi to give a presentation in a predetermined “Path,” or explore instead, in response to student interactions. You can even have your students navigate, contribute to, or create a Prezi on their own. Prezi also easily integrates media. (To see sample Prezis, see: http://prezi.com/explore/.) This interactive workshop will familiarize you with the pedagogical and technical aspects of working with Prezi.
This workshop may be counted toward the Educational Technology cluster of the Achievement in Pedagogy badge, offered through the Graduate Student Teaching Initiative.
