Description: Prezi is a website that allows users to create multimedia presentations that begin with a big picture and then zoom in to focus on smaller details. It contains an archive of templates that can be customized for a variety of purposes. Presentations can include text, images, audio, and video files. You can embed content from other websites as well. The end result are presentations that are rich and engaging for viewers and creators alike.
The possibilities for classroom use are endless. Students could create a Prezi to introduce themselves at the beginning of the school year. The example introduction Prezi is one than can be used in a math class. Prezi can be used anywhere PowerPoint or Google Slides are used. Some students may prefer it because the presentation is not traditional start to finish. Presentations are housed online, so this is a great tool for students that used devices with cloud-based storage, such as Chromebooks.
