Prezi is a cloud based presentation software that opens up a new world between whiteboards and slides. … “Prezi is helping reinvent the art of presentation”. Prezi is the next step on from powerpoint and is FREE to sign up to!
Below is a Prezi that i have created based on the retelling of the story of the Good Samaritan.
When you have your Prezi up with your class, it allows much more freedom of movement. At any time, you can return to the main home page (which shows the entirety of your Prezi) and you can go to any cloud of information from wherever you are – unlike powerpoint where you must go through the slides in the set out order.
It can actually be used with older children for them to create their own. You could do a research based topic, whereby their end of topic piece of work could be presented in the form of a Prezi. It would require you to teach the children how the software works, but I am sure if I know children of today, that they will be finding their way around the software exceedingly quick.
