Today I spent some time working on my presentation for the ITS Panel Interview and Presentation that will take place sometime during the week of December 14th. I knew that I didn’t want to do a boring old Power Point, and although I really do love Keynote, I thought I’d try something new. I had heard about Prezi.com and even tried it out before, but I really never had a need to use it. Prezi’s unique layout features, editor, and “canvas” allows you to be very creative with your presentation format. No longer are speakers tied into the frame of slides and bulleted lists. After spending several hours with this new web resource, I feel as though I have the basics ins-and-outs. Browsing through some of the public Prezis on their showcase demonstrates very easily that I’m an amateur and this presentation application is awesomely versitile and caters to those who prefer their presentations to be less than linear.
Here’s my presentation, below. To check out my complete Instructional Technology Portfolio, visit: http://tinyurl.com/dpkportfolio.
