Does anyone use Prezi in school?

    Do you use Prezi in lessons? I'm thinking (selfishly) KS1 really and if you do I was wondering how you found it.

    www.prezi.com

    Free to register if you have a school email, if not then it is free but all your presentations are public.

    It seems fab to me, but I'm not techie enough to know all the possibilities.

    Hi,
    A teacher used it when I was on placement last year, he had the most AMAZING presentation of the children's work for an assembly (parents invited) I have looked at it briefly but not had the time to have a good play :)
     
  3. It's great, I have used it for my 'meet the teacher' session with my new class but haven't thought of how else it could be used in class. It is dead easy to get going with even though I am still learning!

    I've seen it used well when you can do more than a Powerpoint, but it can also be awful. Please don;' zoom in and out and twirl around more than you really need to!
    Best uses I've seen were zooming around a world map (pics of local people, language and food) and looking at a skeleton (different body parts highlighted).That way there was a reason for the moving and zooming. Have vague memories of a calendar too, but I honestly can't recall what the content was!

    Thank you all.

    I don't often make my own powerpoints to use in class, so don't imagine I'll be making a million prezies/prezis either.

    I know what you mean about the zooming in and out, some of the examples make me feel seasick. Hopefully mine will be ok.

    I really like it; don't use it very often but find it quick and easy to make a very effective presentation. Made one on greater than / less than for Y2 last year which worked well; I've also used it for staff meetings- bit different and jazzier than PowerPoint. I'm going to try the children with it this year as you can download and save the presentations as flash files to your computer.

    Would it be really, really cheeky to ask if you could put it on resources here, or send it to me? I'd love to see a finished one from someone better at it than me.

    I've started a few and have imported a couple of powerpoints to jazz them up, but that's all.

    I have seen some prezis and they look amazing! I have tried to make one but found it really confusing. Would love to know if their is a simpler way or a template, cuoldn't really find any 'how to' videos.
