When compiling a presentation for school, a volunteer organization or another circumstance, most of us turn to PowerPoint. But now there’s another option.
A few months ago as part of a project, a computer education teacher at my school suggested to try a new presentation device: prezi.com. What a friend and I found was a fun and exciting website that made our class presentation stand out.
My favorite part of Prezi is that there is little to no structure. All you have to do is double-click, and a word box will appear in which you can type. In addition, you can insert pictures and shapes, or create a web of ideas. Every Prezi element is like a graphic in that you can make it bigger or smaller and turn it at any angle.
The presentation is what sets Prezi apart from other sources. At this website, you can link items to each other in the order you want them presented, creating a path. To move on to the next item, all you have to do is click, and it will be zoomed in on. Each element will be displayed individually or a few items in a group.
Perhaps the best thing about Prezi, though, is that it is fairly easy to use. When first accessing the website, you can watch a demonstration on how it operates or just navigate around the site yourself. Either way, Prezi is an amazing presentation tool, and I encourage you to try it yourself.
