  44. 44. Chapter 4: Prezi 40 WHAT IS PREZI? Prezi serves a similar function to PowerPoint, but with more powerful and interesting features. In Prezi presentation are created on a ‘canvas’ rather than on slides. This encourages presenters to focus on combining text, image and multimedia. Items on the canvas can be dragged, tilted and zoomed to create engaging look. A ‘path’ can be drawn between the different elements on the stage to create animation. ADVANTAGES OF PREZI According to Tarr (2009), Prezi has the following benefits: 1. It has the ‘wow’ factor which PowerPoint lost many years ago. 2. The ‘canvas’ layout deters presenters from using too much text. 3. It is easy to incorporate images, sounds and videos into one presentation. 4. It is very easy to use. Chapter 4 PREZI
  45. 45. 41 Chapter 4: Prezi USING PREZI According to Lydia (2010), Prezi can be used in the following manner: 1. Formatting: Prezi limits “glitz” options significantly. It has about 8 backgrounds to choose from, and each has pre-programmed fonts and colors that can’t be changed. No more getting lost in the color picker or the font window. 2. Text: It’s easy to put in small amounts of text and more difficult to enlarge the boxes to add “too much” text. This encourages students to use bullets rather than paragraphs. 3. Images: Images can be added and users can use frames to zoom in to a particular portion of a photo. For example, you can have the program zoom to a portion of the photo- ask prediction questions-then have the program zoom out to show the entire scene. You can also easily focus in on a detail that might be lost when viewed as part of the whole photo. 4. Video: Embedding video doesn’t get much easier than Prezi, especially if you are taking it from YouTube. Prezi also lets you upload a wide variety of file formats for images and videos, but limits the file size to 50 MB for the free version. 5. Sharing: This is a new feature in Prezi, and a pretty significant one. You can share presentations with up to 10 viewers and allow them to edit-making collaborative work a breeze. Users can sign up for accounts easily. 6. Prezis embed easily into most webpages and can be used as standalone teaching aids with some creativity in the design of the
  46. 46. Chapter 4: Prezi 42 presentation. Links to public prezis can be posted or emailed- making student work easy to share with family and the world. 7. Differentiation: The biggest difference between Prezi and traditional slideshow programs is the layout. Picture a large, flat pallette upon which you lay the different elements of your presentation. They can be in any arrangement you choose, unlike the linear display of a PowerPoint. Creators use a path to connect the elements, and this path allows users to move easily from one element to another and back again. This layout is great for kids who need to brainstorm, move things around, figure out the order, move it again, and have flexibility in their design. 8. Wheel Reinvention: It just may be that the presentation you are wanting to create for your class already exists, at least in a semi-useable form. Many users post their prezis and allow others to copy them, edit them, and use them for their own purposes.
