Workshop Description: Rethinking Presentations – Prezi and Dynamic Narrative
An analysis and exploration of Prezi, an innovative Web 2.0 presentation tool, with discussion of its potential roles in the classroom. What do you get when you combine presentation software with a concept mapping tool, and add a bit of comic book flair to the mix? The answer: Prezi, a truly remarkable Web 2.0 tool that transforms what is meant – and what can be said – by online presentations. We’ll explore Prezi hands-on, and take a look at some of the possibilities it opens up for educators. We will also see how it fits in with other concepts, such as the “infinite canvas” in webcomics, and what this means for future work in media literacy and creation.
