Prezi is a zooming presentation editor, that is free to use and is a great way to do presentations differently from the very linear slideshows Powerpoint offers. I have been contemplating learning how to use it recently, but learnt that audiences in particular react in mixed ways to presenters who use it, some even reporting feelings of sea sickness! I have briefly storified (below) a short conversation I had on Twitter with other Prezi users.
I’m still undecided although I’m swayed towards giving it a go because I enjoy developing new skills such as these. What do other people think? Is there a good time to use Prezi? When should;t it be used? Do you agree with Peter Matthews that it shouldn’t be used for teaching? Get in touch!
