Prezi in Education

Prezi is a free, visual presentation tool. It has become very popular over the recent years, and many have already replaced their Powerpoints with Prezi-presentations, because the tool gives some new visual possibilities and is easy to use.

Prezi is suitable primarily for the monologic or the polyphonic form of teaching.

Prezi

In the monologic form of teaching, Prezi can be used by the teacher tointroduce to a topic, and to present the main concepts of the subject to the class.

Within the polyphonic form of teaching you can let students collaborate on the development of a Prezi – for example, one can allow groups of students to work simultaneously with various parts of a Prezi presentation, and turn it into a kind of common 'mind-map’ on a specific topic. The tool can also be used for the students' presentations – It will be motivating for many students to be able to make a nice, visual presentation, and since the tool is intuitive and easy to use, the vast majority of learners will be able to use it after a short introduction.
