This is a cool way to upgrade from that boring power point to something more fun and engaging. I learned about these in my first technology class my freshman year. I had never even made a 3D power point before and at first I was intimidated However, I soon found how easy and fun this was. there is sooo much more you can do with Prezi. Whats really nice is that because it is on their website, you cannot lose it. And no need to remember a flash drive Students can make their own Prezi to present to the class on a any subject. Prezi engages the students much more than a boring power point. On the first website I made, I showed how I took a power point, made it 3D, then turned it into a Prezi. My students won't have to take all those steps, but it made it easier for me to learn. Below are a few videos from the Prezi website showing Prezi in action.
