I was introduced to Prezis by the lovely Carolyn over at Holding Hands And Sticking Together.
There are so many things you can do with them!
I found them most useful as a way to organize my online resources. I always have a million websites and youtube videos for teaching various topics, but even when I categorize them in my bookmarks it takes me forever to find the one I was looking for. I usually forget about most of them! :(
Using a Prezi allows me to toss them all onto a blank canvas and arrange them visually. Then I just click on the one I want and it zooms in for a closer look. It makes me feel like I've turned my computer screen into an ipad!
Check out some of these free Prezis from Carolyn: (click on the picture below)
You can also use Prezis as a slideshow to feature different resources. In this kind of Prezi, rather than clicking on the resource image to zoom in, you click the forward arrow and it plays a slideshow to explore any topic you want. A shout-out to the amazing Jessica at A Turn To Learn who made these fabulous prezis about word families and digraphs. They are FREE - make sure you check them out!
So how do you get started? Here's a quick tutorial.
Each of those little bubbles contains information about Dr. Seuss' life or books! Click on the image to see it.
I hope you'll find something inspiring in the freebies I've linked to - I know I will be using them in my classroom this year.
