Changes to Prezi are Impressive

prezi-logo-newPrezi is a tool to share ideas, present work, and persuade in an engaging and visual way. Over the past couple of years, Prezi has undergone significant changes that make the platform much easier to navigate and edit.

Prezi provides a fresh outlook on traditional slideshow presentations. The use of one big canvas and zoom function both allow for emphasis on small ideas as truly being part of the whole. Viewers can see the whole story on one page, unlike the many slides of a PowerPoint. Prezi allows the author to insert images, videos, and other media to enhance the presentation. Prezi is compatible with laptops and tablets.

 

Check out some of Prezi’s new features that make changing your paths and adding or modifying your content much more simple.   Both teachers and students can use Prezi to convey a message, demonstrate understanding of a concept, persuade others, and capture information for a variety of purposes. Prezi encourages collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity as well as organization. Students who use Prezi to develop presentations must use a variety of 21st century skills to design and create an effective presentation.

Check out this student-developed Prezi below. Note the embedded video, photos, and multi-layered format.
