I've been introduced to the world of the Prezi. How about you? About 15 years ago, I was all about the PowerPoint and my students were enthralled with them. Sadly, they have become kin to a lecture style of teaching. The Prezi on the otherhand seems to be the next big thing. They definitely have a more professional video feel to the presentation. Rather than using slides, you create a presentation path. It will take a little bit of practice but I think this Web 2.0 tool has a lot of potential. Best of all, educators have access for free. The only way to really start planning your Prezi is to sign up and start playing around with it. If you're looking for a way to spice things up as you head back to class, this might just be the answer.
Let me get you started in the right direction with some youtube videos.
