Prezi in Education

There are many ways that teachers and students can use Prezi in the classroom.  Since it is a way to create presentations, both teachers and students can use it to present information.

Teachers can use it to present a lesson to a whole group or a small group.  There are many ways that teachers can create interesting and engaging presentations.  Teachers can create the presentation at home and then save them to a thumb drive to use at school.  They can also use the internet to pull up their presentation.  Prezi’s are a fun way to get information across to your students.

Students can also use prezi in the classroom.  When asked to show what they have learned, students could choose to create a prezi.  I would suggest teaching students the basics of prezi before allowing them to choose to create one about a new topic.  Prezi is very user friendly but it does take some getting used to. 

Some projects that can be created include book reports or science and social studies reports.  Students can create a prezi to show the characters, setting, and plot of the story.  For an example, click here.
